Child-labor abuses in the global supply chain, and Food of The Gods: Simran Sethi articles

Hello!

Here are two excellent articles by my friend Simran Sethi, whom I met in 2014 on Vicente Norero’s original Camino Verde cacao farm in Ecuador when she was researching her excellent book Bread, Wine, Chocolate: The Slow Loss of Foods We Love.

The first article below is about the US court case we’ve been following for 15 years, filed by former child slaves in West Africa who escaped.

The second article below shows you how chocolate goes from bean to bar and some of the people involved in the craft chocolate community.

Onward and upward!
