KitKat petition delivered against Fairtrade move

Oct 01, 2020 - BBC

Reuters More than 300,000 people have signed petitions delivered to Nestle in protest at its move to stop using Fairtrade cocoa and sugar in KitKats.

The chocolate wafer bar has been a flagship product of Fairtrade for a decade, but Nestle is cutting links with the non-profit organisation.

The Fairtrade Foundation said the move was "devastating" for thousands of cocoa farmers in the Ivory Coast.

Nestle said it will source KitKat cocoa on Rainforest Alliance terms.
