4:00 – 6:00pm
Burlington City Hall, Contois Auditorium
How is it that in 2012 we can buy dolphin free tuna but not child free chocolate? We will discuss this issue and more at VT’s 3rd Annual Forum on Fair Trade Business, Saturday, September 29, 4:00-6:00pm in Contois Auditorium in Burlington. Co-sponsored by Fair Trade Burlington Network and the Peace and Justice Center our focus will be on the issue of abusive labor, especially child slave labor in the cocoa industry and the challenges of sourcing ethical cocoa for making those delicious chocolate treats we all enjoy.
The event will include a panel discussion with questions and answers, free samples, vendors, displays and more. Our goal is to raise questions, find solutions and celebrate the companies and organizations that choose a fair and just way of doing business.
We look forward to seeing you there!
