Supply and demand dictate market practices. Businesses, therefore, play a large role in the fight against slavery because they directly influence the demand at the bottom of the supply chain. For example, if Hershey stopped purchasing cocoa from farms that use slaves, slavery in these cocoa farms along the ivory coast of Africa would likely decrease.
