In this episode, Peter O’Driscoll discusses the transformational change that can happen when the whole system is in the room. When you change one part of a system, it has a ripple effect on the whole, but if you if want it to be sustainable, you need everyone in the room. For centuries, getting food on the table meant slavery, share cropping and “disposable” labor where workers have not been compensated fairly for their skills and hard work. Cesar Chavez began the work with collective bargaining to protect these workers, but to make the changes long term, the Equitable Food Initiative sought a values proposition that would appeal also to suppliers and retailers and consumers too.
What would be the common denominator? Food safety.
Find out how the Equitable Food Initiative has created a model for improving worker conditions and increased wages, while making food safer for the consumer and reducing costly recalls in stores like Costco and Whole Foods. And find out how you can spread the positive changes to your other favorite retailers as well!
