ACRATH Campaign - Slavery in the world today

Weekend of March 23 & 24

Buy fair trade chocolate this easter - Photo: ACRATHWe cannot ignore the fact that there is as much slavery in the world today, as there was before, or perhaps more – said Pope Francis last month.

Can’t find slavery-free Easter eggs in your supermarket?
Ten years ago there was almost no slavery-free chocolate in our supermarkets in Australia. Now, because of public pressure and consumer demands, most supermarkets will sell some. Thank you for contributing to the demand for slavery-free chocolate, but we have a long way to go.

Good news: There is now slavery-free chocolate available in so many places. It tastes delicious and is no more expensive than other chocolate. Try ALDI, Haighs, OXFAM and leading supermarkets. The Catholic Archdiocese Melbourne is also converting to slavery-free tea and coffee. Get on board!


Action:  When you go to your local supermarket, look for chocolate that has one of these three symbols. If you can’t find any, ask the manager if they stock any.
