Sustainable Food 2012: It’s Not Just About Local Anymore #sustainability #csr

Buying local has long been a maxim of sustainable foodies, in part because of the impact on local economies. But is local really enough? In 2012, there’s been growing interest in how workers throughout the food chain are treated and paid . According to Mother Jones , only 13.5 percent of food workers earn a living wage .

Hershey’s also came under fire for child labor in its cacao been supply chain , and controversies over farm workers in Florida and California continued to escalate.
