Living Wage & Income Lab

Together navigating the road to living wages and incomes

6 years of connecting different actors in international agri-food trade around one goal: erasing poverty from global value chains.

What we do

Towards a decent standard of living
for all

The Living Wage & Income Lab brings together producers, retailers, government officials and other stakeholders from the agri-food sector. Together, we develop and experiment with innovative ways to realise a living wage and income for everyone in global food supply chains.

The Lab was launched because we see low wages are a persistent problem in the agri-food sector. This issue cannot be solved by individual companies alone. Therefore, The Lab is a platform for co-creation and experimentation. Through panel talks, discussions and sharing lessons from the field, we look into solutions and build new partnerships.
