Off Topic - Nestle in court for exploiting child slave labor in Ivory Coast

The chocolate giant apparently has been exploiting child slave labor in the Ivory Coast, knowingly funding and supplying their business partners abroad for cocoa.

Their case will be heard this coming week.

Thanks for publicizing this. I think I’m off chocolate for the time being.


yeah, same. I never liked their chocolate products. they always gave me stomach pain.

Nestle has been very controversial as of late, from declaring that access to clean water isn’t a human right to stealing water from drought-ridden areas during the dry season.

They’re a prime example of corporate greed, and the fact that they’re willing to challenge the outcome of a lawsuit where they knowingly funded, supplied, and profited from foreign business partners who employed literal child slave labor only twists the knife.
