Of the five largest fast food corporations in the country — McDonald’s, Subway, Burger King, Taco Bell (Yum! Brands) and Wendy’s — Wendy’s stands alone as the only one who has refused to join the Fair Food Program and respect the rights and dignity of farmworkers in its supply chain.
Florida-based Publix — one of the largest supermarket corporations in the country, whose purchasing power could strengthen the historic changes underway in Florida’s fields — has instead unconscionably refused to join the Fair Food Program for more than five years.

Wendy’s is one of the largest buyers of tomatoes in the restaurant industry, an industry that for decades purchased cheap tomatoes whose harvest relied on the exploitation of workers. Given its market power, Wendy’s has not only an opportunity, but an obligation to work with the tomato industry to be part of the solution to Florida’s longstanding history of farmworker abuse and poverty: the Fair Food Program.

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 largest privately-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!
