Documentary about Dutch journalists who have been quashing child slavery in the cocoa industry for years. They put their self-named slave-free chocolate bar on the market: 'Tony's Chocolonely'.

As part of the TV programme Keuringsdienst van Waarde, a team of Dutch journalists tried to make short work of child slavery in the cocoa industry in 2003. Their journey to a slave-free world of cocoa lasts to this day. With a good measure of humour and perseverance, the journalists managed to put their first self-named slave-free chocolate bar on the market. The documentary shows the genesis of the 'Tony's Chocolonely' brand, which has now grown into the largest chocolate company in the Netherlands.
