Can one chocolate bar help end child slavery?

Tony’s Chocolonely is the loneliest chocolate bar in the world. Why? They produce chocolate for a reason: to make 100% slave-free chocolate the norm. Not just their own chocolate, but all chocolate worldwide. See how the design of their organization, brand, and even chocolate bar is changing the world, and taste the difference for yourself!

By putting people first and profits second, Tony’s hopes to change the way we consume chocolate. What started as a practical joke turned into a mission to make child slavery-free chocolate the norm. Everything from the organizational strategy to the bar itself is designed to raise awareness and provide resources to end the cycle of poverty in the West African cocoa farming industry.

See how the design of their organization, brand, and even chocolate bar is changing the world, and taste the difference for yourself! Join us at Design Museum Mornings to learn how Tony’s wants to make all chocolate 100% child slavery free at Airbnb, July 13th from 8:30-10am!

Doors open at 8:30 am, presentation begins at 9:00 am. Breakfast will be served. Space is limited. Tickets must be purchased prior to arrival. If you can no longer use your ticket, please let us know!
