On their way to our plates, many foods leave a trail of devastation: workers are exploited, small farmers and indigenous people are displaced, forests are cleared, and soils are rendered infertile by industrial monoculture farming and pesticide use. Human rights violations and environmental destruction are thus present in almost every supermarket product. This is made possible by non-transparent global supply chains, lack of corporate responsibility and lack of legislation. This leads to an unfair distribution of value creation, from which global food corporations and supermarket chains in particular profit.
We are an international coalition of civil society organizations and raise out voice for justice! In solidarity with migrant workers, small farmers and European youth and human rights activists around the world, we challenge the status quo and stand up against these unsustainable conditions.
Our vision is a socially just and sustainable food system - human rights-based and agroecological. A system where food sovereignity is lived and everyone is treated fairly and equally.
Our mission is to fight for decent working conditions for all, advocate for living wages and incomes, improve the rights of migrant workers and indigenous peoples, and stop the climate end environmentally destructive practices of food companies and supermarkets.
That's why we demand strong laws and rules from policy-makers and businesses that ensure human rights and environmental protection in global food supply chains and hold business accountable! It's time for a system change: Let's (b)eat the system!
