Food Justice Certified

Certificate Description

The Food Justice Certified label means that the food was certified to meet the organization’s standards for fair labor and fair trade practices. The label indicates that farmers received a fair price for their products, a price that covers a living wage for the farmers and their workers.

The standards require benefits that farm workers usually do not receive, such as workers’ compensation, disability, unemployment coverage, social security, sick leave (unpaid), and maternity/paternity leave. The standards also include comprehensive requirements to ensure safe working conditions for all workers. In addition, there are environmental standards, and only certified organic farms carry the Food Justice Certified label at this time.

The Agricultural Justice Project, the organization behind the label, states that it works to transform the existing agricultural system and seeks empowerment, justice, and fairness for all who labor from farm to retail.
