September 3, 2020: Child labor in cocoa production

“Estimates suggest that around one in three children living in cocoa-growing areas of Côte d’Ivoire and Ghana (which account for more than 65% of global cocoa production) is involved in child labor,” according to the International Cocoa Initiative.

“Child labour in cocoa remains a significant challenge despite extensive efforts to tackle it over the past two decades.”
