Hivos is an international organisation that seeks new solutions to persistent global issues. With smart projects in the right places, we oppose discrimination, inequality, abuse of power and the unsustainable use of our planet’s resources. Counterbalance alone, however, is not enough. Our primary focus is achieving structural change. This is why we cooperate with innovative businesses, citizens and their organisations. We share a dream with them of sustainable economies and inclusive societies.

Fairfood is a fact-based campaigning organization that promotes a decent life for the people producing the food we consume in the Netherlands. Commodity for commodity we will research and unveil income inequalities and unfair practices for workers and farmers in the supply chain. We will communicate our findings to the public and industry and experiment on solutions within the Living Wage Lab. We aim to move industry players to pay living wages and incomes in their supply chains. Fairfood strives for a food system in which people live and work in dignity, the environment is respected and there is social and economic value for all.
