Tony’s Chocolonely – Crazy about Chocolate, Serious About People!

Tony’s Chocolonely – Crazy about Chocolate, Serious About People!

Founded in 2005 by three journalists from the Dutch TV show ‘Keuringsdienst van Waarde’, Tony’s Chocolonely, was inspired by their revelation that the world’s largest chocolate manufacturers were buying cocoa from plantations that used illegal child labour and modern slavery. For many of us chocolate is a reward used to motivate children for good behaviour, but in Western Africa chocolate represents an industry that enslaves and imprisons children, exploiting them for free labour. According to the 2018 Cocoa Barometer, there are as many as two million children enslaved in the Chocolate Industry.

Tony’s Chocolonely is working achieve a 100% slave free Chocolate Industry with world-leading incentive to show that chocolate can be made differently. They are working to achieve this through direct, long-term relationships with cocoa farmers in Ghana and Ivory Coast creating a transparent and traceable bean-to-bar process. Tony’s Chocolonely also pays a higher price for the Fairtrade cocoa beans, provides business and agricultural training to increase productivity on farms and even donats one percent of their net revenue to the Chocolonely Foundation, supporting projects to eradicate modern slavery in the cocoa chain.

Tony’s is the best-selling chocolate bar in the Netherlands and now enters the New Zealand market on Farro shelves, a conscious purchase that tastes as good as it sounds.
