Human suffering should never be an ingredient in the food we buy from supermarkets.
Yet, millions of people around the world, many of them women, who farm, fish, and process the food in our stores are working extremely long hours, toiling in unsafe conditions, and earning only poverty wages.
To illustrate this problem, Oxfam looked at the seafood in our supermarkets. Pressure from supermarkets to keep costs low means that the people who fish and process seafood face harsh and degrading conditions on a daily basis, and receive wages that are sometimes so low they struggle to feed their families.
With this campaign, we aim to raise the voices of the people who produce our food to ensure they are treated and paid fairly. Join Oxfam to help create a more equal and just food system–one that isn’t built on human suffering, discrimination, and unsafe working conditions.
