Help end the
suffering
behind
your food

Human suffering should never be an ingredient in the food we eat.

Something is desperately wrong when the food we buy in our supermarkets is produced by women and men going hungry themselves, working long, hard hours for little reward or putting up with appalling abuse from their bosses.

We refuse to accept that exploitation, poverty and human suffering should play any part in getting food to our supermarket shelves. Together, we can make sure the big supermarket chains put a stop to it for good.

Take action

I pledge to stand with the people #BehindThePrice and to call for:

  • An end to inhumane and dangerous working conditions
  • Fair pay
  • Safe and decent work for women

Check out how your supermarket performs in the updated scorecard below

The supermarket scorecard

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

We analysed the supermarkets’ policies and practices on human rights in their supply chains and asked whether supermarkets are transparent and accountable in the ways they ensure that workers’ rights are respected, small-scale farmers are prosperous and resilient and the women who produce our food are treated fairly.

Three steps to a supermarket scorecard:

1. We examined supermarkets' policies and practices

2. Looked for behaviour that protects workers, farmers and women

3. Gave each supermarket a total score out of 100%
