Enjoying chocolates just got really better, once you know that these treats can actually bring a smile to your face! Even more so if you find out that the brand you’re getting your choco fix from actually cares – and that’s the main reason why Tony’s Chocolonely is such an amazing confectionary name!
Starting a Revolution
It all began when Teun van de Keuken, a Dutch investigative reporter, discovered that chocolate manufacturers part of the Harkin–Engel Protocol weren’t practicing the slave-free chocolate process assured by the signed agreement. That said, he did try to make a case against these companies through several ways.
Seeing that his efforts were for naught (even if he contacted former child slaves to sue him for purchasing illegally manufactured chocolates), he then decided to take a step further – he created his own chocolate brand!
The main difference that van de Keuken’s brand, Tony Chocolonely, has from other brands is that his products are exclusively made using the child slave-free process. Additionally, he decided to name his brand as such, considering he created the company solely, with no help whatsoever from other names in the industry.
Since its launch in 2007, Tony Chocolonely continued to ramp up production in a slow yet steady manner. From producing chocolates only in the Netherlands, Tony Chocolonely is now available in some parts of Europe and the United States. Recent expansion of this brand’s products can be seen in Ireland, with more stores now offering these treats for sale.
