The Chocolate Case
group of young Dutch journalists began a campaign against child slavery in the cocoa industry. Their journey towards a slave-free world cocoa began as part of a report on a current affairs TV program. Combining archival material with new footage and interviews an inspiring story is brought up to date. The film shows how difficult it is to change basic errors and injustices of the global system we live in. But it is not impossible. With a large dose of humor and an unrelenting perseverance they manage to bring the first self-proclaimed slave-free chocolate to market. In ten years the brand 'Tony's Chocolonely' has become the largest chocolate company in the Netherlands and works hand in hand with all involved throughout its supply chain.
