This video describes the labour conditions behind the Thai fishing industry, the biggest supplier of shrimp to four of the biggest retailers through CP. For me, it shows the importance of recognizing scale and limits to what we do, and what we buy. So what can we do for more sustainable food systems? Buy local wherever possible, buy local and organic wherever possible and if affordable and eat seasonally. Ask questions of your retailers, ask about excessive packaging, ask about labour conditions, make a difference by speaking out.
