Dear Haigh’s,

We have been concerned about child labour and slavery in the chocolate industry particularly in West Africa.

We recognise that Haigh’s was the first Australian-owned bean-to-bar chocolate maker to achieve international UTZ certification — for ethically and sustainably farmed cocoa beans, which includes a zero-tolerance policy towards trafficked child labour.

We just wanted to say THANK YOU for being early adopters and being an Australian company that we can be proud of.

We look forward to promoting any measures that you continue to develop so not only can we know it is great chocolate – but chocolate that is doing good!

Thanks again,
