HERSHEY CALL-IN SCRIPT
Hi, my name is ___ and I’m calling from ___. I am a huge fan of [insert your favorite HERSHEY candy here].* I’m calling today because I want Hershey to raise the bar for responsible cocoa sourcing and commit to begin using Fair Trade Certified cocoa for my favorite chocolate. Ten years after Hershey committed to ending child labor, forced labor and trafficking in its cocoa, the abuses continue and Hershey needs to do more to end this exploitation. I support the demands of the Raise the Bar Hershey campaign.
Thank you for your time!
