Labour exploitation is endemic in global tea and cocoa industries, international study finds

  • International study shows forced labour is widespread in global tea and cocoa supply chains feeding European markets
  • Ethical certification schemes are failing to combat forced labour in tea and cocoa supply chains
  • Large scale reforms are needed from governments, global corporations, certification organisations, and industry auditors to eradicate forced labour – including living wages and strong enforcement of labour standards.
