Backbone of Sustainable Food: Food Chain Workers & Their Working Conditions in Vermont

Vermont Fair Food Campaign


The Vermont Fair Food Campaign (VFFC)undertook this study to better understand conditions for food chain workers in Vermont. VFFC seeks to ensure that the sustainable food movement respects the rights of the workers who process, package, distribute, and sell our food. Low-paying, unstable jobs in the state’s fastest-growing industry limit the market for the products being sold here. To reach its full potential and create an economically sustainable model, jobs in the food chain should be good jobs that match Vermont’s growing presence in the movement for sustainable agriculture.
