Oxfam launch new food campaign

Behind the Brands is part of Oxfam’s GROW campaign which aims to create a world where everyone has enough to eat.

As part of the campaign they have issued a Behind the Brands Scorecard which assesses the agricultural sourcing policies of the world's 10 largest food and beverage companies.

It exclusively focuses on publicly available information that relates to the policies of these companies on their sourcing of agricultural commodities from developing countries.
