The workers at Driscoll's, the worlds largest supplier of berries, are asking us to boycott Driscoll's! They site inhumane working conditions like exposure to harmful chemicals, being bullied into not taking breaks, no medical coverage, loss of housing, and making only $6 hours per day for 12-15 hours of work! If that isn't enough, they also use child labor!
When the Hunger Mountain Coop was contacted about Driscoll's deplorable labor practices being contradictory to our Coop's mission and sourcing practices they stated, "Our Coop does not attempt to sort these complex issues out."
The Coops buying policies clearly state a commitment to Fair Trade practices! "Fair Trade: The practice of ensuring that producers work in safe conditions, are paid fair wages and are mindful of the environment."
For HMC to continue to sell Driscoll's is unacceptable. Help us put an end to supporting exploitation! Join us is sending a loud and clear message to Hunger Mountain Coop of Montpelier, VT. Boycott Driscoll's NOW! Please sign and share!
