Author: AAP Australia, Published on: 28 October 2010
Biscuit company Arnotts will source ethical cocoa that has not been processed with the use of child labour for all of its chocolate-based products, World Vision says. In response to a public campaign by World Vision earlier this year, Arnotts said it was committed to playing its part by sourcing sustainable cocoa that avoids the use of child trafficking and unacceptable forms of child labour by the end of September 2010. World Vision chief executive Tim Costello said…"Arnotts sources 24 per cent of its cocoa from Ghana…We are very pleased with Arnotts' commitment to source ethical cocoa."
