Living wages in practice
The aim of this research is to learn more about living wages in a corporate context. Most living wage research that has been conducted so far are in-depth analyses focusing on one particular case. For Eosta, an international importing business with a large product range of organic fruits and vegetables, this detailed research approach is not a feasible option. Accordingly, they decided to conduct a research pilot, focusing on one particular case; Kenyan avocados, and use the learnings and best practices to define a more broadly applicable approach. This study focuses on the case study of organic avocados from Kenya. Eosta partnered with one of their Kenyan exporters to map the supply chain and research current wages.
