Buy and Avoid

Empowered by

Forced labor and child labor is pervasive in the food and beverages we consume everyday. Remember, every time you buy something, you are voting with your wallet. If you would like to help put an end to modern slavery right now, you can do so by becoming a more responsible consumer. To help you achieve this, we have compiled a list, courtesy of KnowTheChain’s 2018 Food and Beverage Benchmark Findings Report.

The scores are based on how companies perform across seven themes:

Commitment and Governance

Traceability and Risk Assessment

Purchasing Practices

Monitoring and Remedy


Worker Voice

If you absolutely love a product and just can’t give it up then Tweet at the company and ask them to do better. Just add the Twitter handle of the company you are speaking to at the front of your tweet, when you are ready click “tweet” and your voice will be heard.
