Cocoa-nomics: Now can chocolate companies stamp out slavery?

Two years ago, the documentary Chocolate's Child Slaves exposed the slave labor that goes into making the chocolate we eat around the world. Some of the children made to work in the cocoa plantations in countries like Ivory Coast are children and many have never even tasted chocolate. Now CNN has returned to the plantations, this time with the Executive Vice President of Nestle, to find out if anything has changed and to see if the chocolate industry is willing and able to eradicate slavery from its supply chains.

Cocoa-nomics, presented by Richard Quest, will air on CNN International on March 1. You can watch the trailer above. And we'd like to hear from you too if you are taking steps to make sure the food you eat is not produced by slave labor. Find out more in our iReport assignment.
