Waitrose produces first report into how to improve the lives of the women involved in its supply chain

Leading UK fresh produce retailer Waitrose says it wants to ‘talk openly about issues’ food producers face, highlighting issues such as discrimination, sexual harassment and women’s land rights.

The retailer said it wants to “talk openly about issues” food producers face, and said that despite continued efforts to protect the welfare and wellbeing of workers, harassment, child slavery, and low pay still exist.

In its new report, Waitrose, and the John Lewis Partnership as a whole, highlighted the likes of discrimination against migrant strawberry pickers in southern Spain, sexual harassment in Egypt, and women’s land rights in Kenya.
