Does your supermarket food contain human suffering?
We investigated the biggest supermarkets’ policies to see whether they’re protecting the people who produce our food or leaving workers’ rights on the shelf.
What we discovered was outrageous: not one of the supermarkets is doing enough to ensure basic human rights for the thousands of people who put food into our shops and onto our tables. Some workers go to work and produce food all day but go home hungry.
You tweeted, emailed and took action in store. And in the year since we first challenged the supermarkets Tesco, Sainsbury's, Asda, Aldi, Morrisons and Lidl to put people first, all six have improved. You used your consumer power and forced these corporate giants to improve their offer – to shoppers and the people in their supply chains.
Campaigning works. But there’s still a long way to go to end the suffering in your supermarket shop. With fair wages, equality and decent working conditions, women and men can work their way out of poverty now and beat it for good.
