PORTLAND, Ore., Jan. 31, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Tony's Chocolonely, a Fairtrade and B-Corp certified company on a mission to make all chocolate worldwide 100 percent slave free, just announced the search for the perfect staff for its brand new Chocotruck. That's right, we said choc-o-truck. Tony's is looking for three people who are crazy about chocolate and serious about people to lead its multi-city Chocotruck Tour this spring.
Starting today through February 12, chocolate lovers, fans, connoisseurs and self-proclaimed chocolate aficionados will have the chance to apply to go on an epic road trip in Tony’s Chocolonely’s first-ever Chocotruck Tour across ten cities, beginning at SXSW in Austin. The Chocotruck Captain and two Choco Co-Pilots will spread chocolatey goodness while helping Tony's educate consumers about inequalities in the cocoa industry.
If you're thinking this is just your average food truck, think again. There's more than just a vast amount of delicious chocolate to this bright red chocomobile. Visitors will have a chance to step inside the world of Tony's and learn about inequality within the cocoa industry. Here's the deal. Right now, there is modern slavery and illegal child labor on cocoa farms in West Africa. Tony's Chocolonely exists to change that. And that's exactly why Tony's is hitting the road: to create awareness, make lots of new friends, share our chocolate and have a ton of fun.
"Maybe I'm biased, but these are the best jobs ever. I mean... getting paid to go on a road trip in an epic Chocotruck with the goal of making the world a better place? Yes, please," says Dena White, US Marketing Manager for Tony's Chocolonely. "We're very crazy about chocolate and we want to share the fun with choco fans across the country. But don't be mistaken. We're very serious about our mission. Everything we do is to achieve a single goal: to make all chocolate worldwide 100% slave free. The Chocotruck is our way of taking our mission on the road and sharing our story with as many new friends as we can."
Think you have what it takes to be part of the chocotruck crew? You'll need a passion for chocolate and people, a fun-loving spirit and a sense for adventure, not to mention flexibility and a solid sense of humor. Perks of the job include, but are not limited to, endless amounts of chocolate on the tour, very competitive salary, monthly massages, weekly yoga, generous per diems and accommodations... not to mention endless bragging rights.

About Tony's Chocolonely
Tony's Chocolonely was founded to end modern slavery and exploitation in the cocoa industry. They're not a chocolate company. They're an impact company that makes chocolate. Since its founding by the makers of the Dutch television program 'Keuringsdienst van Waarde' in 2005, Tony's Chocolonely has been fighting for slave-free chocolate. They not only want to make their own chocolate 100% slave free, but all chocolate worldwide. They buy the cocoa beans directly from partner cooperatives in Ghana and Ivory Coast and work closely with them to ensure traceability and fair payments. This is how they set the example that chocolate can be made differently. And so, they inspire others to follow them. And you can participate too. The more people choose slave-free chocolate and share Tony's story, the sooner 100% slave-free chocolate becomes the norm.
