Coalition of Immokalee Workers and Verité Partner for the Implementation and Monitoring of the Historic ‘Fair Food’ Program

The Coalition of Immokalee Workers (CIW), a Florida-based farm worker organization, and Verité, a non-governmental organization that promotes and monitors fair labor practices across the globe, announced today their partnership in the implementation of a program to significantly improve wages and working conditions in the Florida tomato industry. The program comes as a result of the CIW’s landmark “Fair Food” agreements with food industry leaders including Yum Brands, McDonald’s, Burger King, Subway, Whole Foods, Compass, and Bon Appétit.
