Care to tell Hershey’s to Raise the Chocolate Bar?

Hershey’s—one of America’s best known and well loved chocolate companies, just released their first-ever Corporate Social Responsibility Report.

Kudos! Mostly!

It’s great news to hear this yummy behemoth is making steps in the right direction. But the report seems to fall short on a few levels.

It neglects to mention any plan to ensure that its supply chains aren’t tainted with forced labor, human trafficking and abusive child labor.

To their credit, Hershey’s is asking for your opinion on their corporate responsibility via an online survey.

Let’s let them know it’s time to take further steps toward Fair Trade. It’s an opportunity for consumers and the Hershey’s Company to work together to get products we can all feel good about.

Tell them what you think by taking the survey here.
