Essential movie for chocolate lovers!
15 July 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I love chocolate. Any chocolate. I always try and buy ethically but when the chocolate mood is on me I am likely to grab and scoff without thinking. Until I saw 'Nothing Like Chocolate' that is... This engaging and moving film reveals a lot I didn't previously know about the practices associated with chocolate production, including the use of exploited child labour. It is far from a depressing movie however, because of the inspiring story it tells about Mott Green and the Grenada Chocolate company. Every aspect of their chocolate production is fair to the producers and good for the consumers (I've tried their chocolate - it's tremendous!) The characters in the film - the growers, the chocolate company workers, Mott himself - are delightful and bring the issues into focus in a moving and humorous way. I recommend anyone who is interested in ethical consumption and production to look at this film.
