Workers in Almeria

Ethical Consumer asked supermarkets to take responsibility for the rights of workers like Spitou who grow the produce they sell.

Spitou works in Almeria Spain where more than half of Europe’s fruit and vegetables are grown. Much of the produce that he and his colleagues grow and pick goes to UK supermarkets. But for many years workers from the region have protested against serious exploitation. 

Ethical Consumer called on UK supermarkets to act and make sure that their suppliers uphold workers’ rights.

When most of the shares in The Co-operative Bank were sold off to private shareholders in 2013, a group of bank customers, supported by Ethical Consumer magazine, formed the Save Our Bank Campaign and allowed for the maintenance of its world-leading ethical policies and brave campaigning.
