Sustainable production and consumption patterns in the chocolate industry : Comparing supply and demand of ethical chocolate on the German market

Nachhaltige Produktions- und Konsummuster in der Schokoladenindustrie : Vergleich der Markteinführung ethischer Schokoladen mit Nachfrage und Akzeptanz auf dem deutschen Markt

Whether it be the chocolate manufacturers’ promise to maintain a sustainable and ethical supply chain, the minimal impact on the environment or the maximum adherence to human rights in their production process.
