Last but not least: We are crazy about chocolate, serious about people
Tony’s Chocolonely – a social enterprise - wants all chocolate to be 100% slave-free, not only ours. We understand the causes of (child) slavery in the cocoa industry and we have a strong belief these can be solved by the industry itself. So we show the chocolate industry it can be done and in a commercially successful and profitable manner. Achieving a significant share of the chocolate bar market in the USA is a critical step in our roadmap to slave-free chocolate. It will be serious hard work, but we can have fun doing it.
