Milk with Dignity: NFWM Sends Support

NFWM has sent a letter of support to Hannaford Supermarkets, urging them to join the Milk with Dignity Program of Migrant Justice and thereby eliminate human rights abuses from their supply chain.

Milk with Dignity is a program created by Migrant Justice that provides a worker-led solution to the systemic problems plaguing the dairy industry. The program puts in place worker-defined standards for labor and housing, monitored by an independent third-party that audits farms and responds to complaints, and paid for by dairy companies. Standards are enforced through legally-binding contracts and strong marketplace consequences for farms that don’t comply.
