When Warner Bros. announced it was bringing Harry Potter's favourite chocolate treat to life, muggles throughout the world rejoiced! The only problem is that outside of the wizarding world, Chocolate Frogs have a sinister side... they could be a product of modern slavery.
In the Ivory Coast of Africa, children as young as 7 are forced to work long hours collecting cocoa beans, often beaten if they don't meet their quota. While many chocolate brands have made public commitments to find the best solution, Warner Bros. is lagging behind.
Their supplier Behr's Chocolates scored 1 out of 48 possible measures to ensure their operations are slavery-free. Outraged consumers asked Warner Bros. what steps were taken to ensure there was no slavery in Harry Potter Chocolates and Warner Bros. refused to respond. That's why taking a stand right now will make a big impact.
Ask Warner Bros. what steps they're taking to ensure Harry Potter chocolates are slavery-free.
Dear Mr Kevin Tsukihara, CEO of Warner Bros.,
I was shocked to learn that an independent investigation into Behr's Chocolates - supplier of your iconic 'Harry Potter Chocolate Frogs' - led to a failing score of 1 out of 48 possible measures to ensure their operations are slavery free.
As a consumer, I want the power to know that the goods I'm buying are free from slave labour.

Please take a public stance against modern slavery, and show consumers what steps are being taken to ensure your Harry Potter chocolates are slavery-free.
Keep up the great work. Look what you've accomplished!
