Fair Trade hosts sweet doc screening
Claremont Fair Trade will host a documentary screening of “The Dark Side of Chocolate,” this Wednesday, September 19, at 7 p.m. The event takes place in the Claremont Forum, located at 586 W. First St. within the Old Packing House.
The 45-minute documentary follows award-wining Danish journalist Miki Mistrati’s investigation into child labor in the chocolate industry. Footage within the film reveals illegal trafficking of small children in the cocoa fields of Ivory Coast.
Discussion and a fair trade chocolate tasting provided by local Claremont retailers will follow the screening.
