Come for the film, enjoy the treats and even shop the #FairTrade store for gifts or yourself. Every purchase matters and this is your chance to be a part of the movement to put people and the planet first.

The film follows 3 Dutch journalists who uncover child labor in the cocoa production chain, which triggers them to try to persuade large corporations to end unethical practices. The trio sets out on a mission to develop the first ‘slave-free’ chocolate bar, known as ‘Tony’s Chocolonely’ – now one of Holland’s leading chocolate brands. The film is both an expose of problems within the chocolate supply chain, and an inspirational story of people trying to change the world they live in.
