For over three years, farmworkers and consumers have been demanding that Wendy’s join its major competitors – Taco Bell, McDonald’s, Subway and Burger King – in participating in the Fair Food Program. Yet, Wendy's has instead consciously
and shamefully opted to profit from farmworker poverty and abuse, continuing to cling to the low-bar standards of the past when presented with an acclaimed and proven alternative.
Rather than participate in what was called the "best workplace-monitoring program” in the U.S. in the New York Times, Wendy's ran from responsibility and abandoned the Florida tomato industry altogether.
In response to increasing pressure from consumers to join the Fair Food Program, Wendy's released a new code of conduct for its suppliers, a perfect example of the failed, widely-discredited approach to corporate social responsibility that is completely void of effective enforcement mechanisms to protect farmworkers’ human rights.
Publix – Florida's hometown grocer – has for several years stubbornly refused to join the Fair Food Program to take responsibility for the conditions in its supply chain and make a commitment to human rights. Besides being rooted in Florida, Publix is the 8th largestprivately-owned corporation in the U.S., with supermarkets across Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee and the Carolinas. Now is the time for Publix to come to the table with the Coalition of Immokalee Workers and join the Fair Food Program!
