2005Côte d'Ivoire : Sued for forced child labor by the International Labor Rights Fund (ILRF) on behalf of three Malian children who were allegedly trafficked to work on plantations in Ivory Coast. “It is unconscionable that Nestle, ADM and Cargill have ignored repeated and well-documented warnings over the past several years that the farms they were using to grow cocoa employed child slave laborers. We had to go to court as a last resort,” said ILRF attorney.Novis
