A living wage for all

We believe sustainable agriculture means workers are paid a living wage. That’s why we require that farms make progress towards paying a living wage to their workers. But it’s not an easy fix. We must work with companies, farmers, governments and NGOs to take the necessary steps towards achieving this. This is what you can do.
