dc.description<p>Poverty is widespread among the small-scale farmers and workers who produce and process our food, in an industry worth billions of dollars. Oxfam’s new campaign highlights the systemic inequality and human suffering in food supply chains – and shows how action by supermarkets, governments, small-scale farmers and workers could lead to a decent and dignified standard of living for millions of people.</p> <p>This paper is based on the <a href="https://www.oxfam.de/system/files/20160531-oxfam-sweet-fruit-bitter-truth-en.pdf"> Sweet Fruit, Bitter Truth </a> report published by Oxfam Germany in May 2016, which revealed violations of human and labour rights on banana and pineapple plantations in Costa Rica and Ecuador that supply or have supplied fruit to major supermarket chains Aldi and Lidl. This summarized and updated version of the report has been launched to coincide with Oxfam’s new campaign. It is one of a series of case studies to supplement the global campaign report, <a href=" https://indepth.oxfam.org.uk/ripe-for-change/"> Ripe for Change</a>, drawing attention to the plight of specific groups of small-scale producers and/or promoting successful alternative approaches. </p>en
