Here are the details for a Stop the Traffik action on Friday 18th Oct.
STT Toblerone Traffik-free campaign, we are also looking for some people to go into Modeleze and present the postcards to Simon Talbot (Director of Corporate affairs)
Can’t wait to share with Modeleze that we do care about our Traffik-Free Chocolate, here in Australia!
Stop the Traffik: Traffik-Free Toblerone
This year on Friday 18th October, Anti-Slavery Day, we’re sending Mondelez a message. We’re asking them to take urgent action to help end child trafficking in the cocoa industry.
We’re asking them two things:
- When will Toblerone be traffik-free?
- When will they release a pubic timeline committing to certifying the rest of their range?
Yet, despite their recent announcements about cocoa sourcing there are still no clear answers to our questions.
We need your help to get Mondelez’s attention!
Join us in delivering a message to Mondelez.
By meeting at 11:45am
Join us on Friday the 18 October
at 11:45am at DFO, South Wharf

I suggest in front of the DFO car park, there is quite a bit of space & people flow.
Just look for the giant Toblerone & the Jugglers

Mondelēz are one of the world’s biggest chocolate companies. Like other chocolate companies they have known about child trafficking into their industry since 2001.
In November 2012 we welcomed their statement to invest $400m into ‘sustainable cocoa’, and in July this year they released more information about what the focus of this would be, but failed to provide specific targets or deadlines. We are asking for more direct action and information.
There are still no clear details about when specific bars such as Toblerone will be made with certified cocoa beans, and when they will commit to certification for the rest of their range.
Together we can STOP THE TRAFFIK
