Summary
Investigative journalist Miki Mistrati stands outside Nestlé headquarters in Switzerland. Behind him visual evidence of trafficking and child slavery in the chocolate industry is shown on a huge mobile screen. Since these revelations were shown to consumers all over the world, the chocolate industry is now making statements on its websites and in the press. The spokesperson for the entire industry, Joanna Scott, asserts that the world's biggest companies spend millions of dollars helping the children on the plantations to better lives--that more than 40 programs of education, the building of schools, hospital construction etc. are in operation in the Ivory Coast. But is this true? Miki goes to the Ivory Coast and Ghana and carries out a reality check only to discover that the truth is worse than expected.
