Haribo gummy bears made under slave labor conditions, documentary alleges


German candymaker Haribo will launch an audit of its associated companies following allegations of using slave labor and sourcing its ingredients from producers with cruel animal conditions.

The company, mostly known for its gummy candy products sold worldwide, has come under fire after a documentary aired in Germany accusing the candymaker of using products made in unbearable conditions for animals and humans, the San Francisco Chronicle reported.

According to the documentary, the company purchased carnauba wax from a Brazilian company that produced the ingredient under slave labor conditions, including no bathroom aces, no drinking water, and horrible living conditions for its workers. Workers at the company reportedly made $12 a day for harvesting palm leaves.
