Background: Southern Florida was once known as "Ground Zero For Human Trafficking". This location supplies most of our countries tomatoes during the winter months. Injustices like actual slavery, sexual assault and, some studies suggest that up to 80% of farmworkers, experience violence in their work.
Because of the vastness of our agriculture fields and who our farmworkers are, a group of farmerworkers realized that the best way to bring about change was to get everyone involved: farmworkers, farms, companies they sell to and consumers like you and I.
Thus, the Fair Food Program was born. The Fair Food Program is a partnership that benefits everyone in the supply chain: workers, growers, retailers, and consumers. Because of the Program’s unique approach, farmworkers can confidently report issues without fear, Participating Growers can swiftly and competently address any problems and learn to prevent them, and Participating Buyers can count on a secure and ethical supply chain.
