Modern slavery is a truly global issue – something that is revealed by our data on forced labour in global supply chains. In this year’s report, we are able to map goods that are at risk of being produced with modern slavery against trade import data for G20 countries. We found that, when looking at the ‘top 5’ at risk products in terms of dollar value, G20 countries collectively import US$354 billion worth of products at risk of being produced by modern slavery per annum.

Looking at two commodities in more detail – fish and cocoa – we have also been able to identify the risk factors and prevalence of forced labour associated with the production of these goods.
