US ALLOWS CHILD SLAVERY SUIT AGAINST NESTLE AND CARGILL

OCCRP on 25th October reported that a US court has allowed a lawsuit from 6 former child slaves to be reinstated against the US section of Nestle SA and Cargill Inc for aiding and perpetuating their captivity on cocoa farms in the Ivory Coast.  The companies stand accused of ignoring the child slavery on the farms in order to receive lower prices on the cocoa.
