Fyffes Farms Exposed: New Report Details Human Rights Abuses
A new report, Fyffes Farms Exposed: The Fight for Justice on the Honduran Melon Fields, reveals long-term, ongoing human and workers’ rights violations on Fyffes melon farms in Honduras. Through a series of first-hand interviews and documentation, the report chronicles toxic chemical exposure and wage theft by Fyffes subsidiaries, as well as their violent union-busting campaign once workers organized.
The report also details the response of supermarkets, fair trade certifiers, ethical labels, and international governmental organizations to Fyffes workers’ rights violations.
These violations continue, as worker safety continues to be an even greater issue during the COVID-19 pandemic. Meanwhile, Fyffes continues to sell fair trade certified melons (under the SOL brand) as well as bananas and pineapples in U.S., UK, and European markets.
