The Supermarket Industry
By leveraging its high-volume purchasing power, the U.S. supermarket industry plays an active role in farmworker exploitation.
Ahold USA (parent company of Stop & Shop and Giant) and Kroger all pack a very heavy punch when it comes to their market power in the produce industry. And with great power comes great responsibility — both for the poverty and brutal working conditions from which they have profited for so many years, and for the work of reforming farm labor conditions in their supply chains that lies ahead.
If the goal of a more modern, more humane Florida tomato industry is to be fully realized, the supermarket giants must do their part.
