TORONTO, Jan. 30, 2014 /CNW/ -


World Vision will host a "Chocolate for Breakfast" media event to launch their Good Chocolate Guide and provide tips and tactics for Canadians who want to ensure that true love is in every aspect of their Valentine's gift giving this year. The Good Chocolate Guide is World Vision's web-based, mobile-friendly guide to help Canadians shop for Valentine's Day treats—and chocolates year round—that are ethically-certified to be child-labour free.

Media will sample an array of ethical chocolate products available in Canada, as well as breakfast treats baked with ethical ingredients.

Experts will speak about:

  • The problem of children doing hazardous work in the cocoa industry

  • How the cocoa industry and chocolate companies are responding to the issue

  • What it means for a chocolate company be "ethically certified"

  • How Canadians can make sure Valentine's treats don't contain dark secrets
