Cooperation for better working conditions in Morocco

Much of the fruit and vegetables we see in Swedish supermarkets are imported from other countries. Morocco is one of the countries that several food companies trade with. However, in Morocco, many farmers and workers in the agricultural sector are forced to work under harmful working conditions. Human rights violations are common, not least in the form of forced labor, sexual harassment and discrimination. In a new collaboration, Coop Sweden, ICA, Axfood and Greenfood are coming together to find joint solutions for better working conditions, led by Oxfam Sweden and ETI Sweden.
