Stand Up for Food That Is Responsibly Grown and Farmworker Assured

Empowered By

The Equitable Food Initiative (EFI) is a new project that brings together workers, growers and retailers in the effort to produce better fruits and vegetables. As produce farms comply with the EFI Standard—for improved working conditions, pesticide management, and food safety—the entire food system sees benefits, all the way from farm workers to consumers.

About the Pledge

Everyone deserves safe food and a safe workplace. The best way to ensure both is to produce food that has integrity, from farm to fork. By training and empowering farmworkers and growers to reduce food safety risks and pesticide use, and improving working conditions in the fields, we can create higher levels of assurance that add value throughout the fresh produce system.
