FAIRTRADE AND CHOCOLATE
EDM #2280
Tabled 08 April 2019
2017-19 Session
That this House notes that the global chocolate industry is worth in excess of £99 billion, with the average UK citizen consuming 8.4 kilograms of chocolate in 2017; recognises the ongoing plight of many in the global chocolate supply chain which has led to farmers in places like Ivory Coast and Ghana being underpaid and exploited for their substantial efforts; supports the Fairtrade Foundation in their petition calling for an end to exploitation in the chocolate supply chain; and calls on the Government to provide a global lead on this issue and target aid in a way which supports farmers involved in the cocoa industry to achieve a living income.
