What do you recommend in terms of approaching Whole Foods and other retailers with like-minded people who are concerned about justice for food producers and workers?

Are you including Trader Joe's under Aldi?
Sarah Zoen
01:08:35
TJ's is actually not owned by Aldi, which is something our research revealed. We thought there was a connection but they are separate.
ElizaStrode
01:08:38
I'm sorry, I haven't been able to see/hear it all today--will watch later. Is it possible to prepare some materials which people can use for tabling outside Whole Foods, at farmers' markets, and other venues?

You may have already addressed Starbucks, and their very minimal commitment to Fair Trade, and maximal PR use they make of it. We should be educating people there as well. (Though I ONLY drink Equal Exchange coffee!)
eeactionforum@equalexchange.coop
01:14:56
eeactionforum@equalexchange.coop -- please email us for questions and how to get more involved!
Sarah Zoen
01:14:56
Eliza, our campaign isn't focused on Starbucks but definitely something we should consider if we ever engage the company in other aspects of work.
ElizaStrode
01:15:06
I want to thank Equal Exchange and Oxfam SO MUCH for your commitment to these issues and activism.

Are individual companies being rated by your organizations? For example, Newman's Own?
eeactionforum@equalexchange.coop
01:16:58
Feel free to answer yes to our poll and we can send more information on our annual event of the year
ElizaStrode
01:18:34
You may already have addressed this--Is there a list of ingredients to always avoid? E.G. Palm oil
ElizaStrode
01:19:18
Sorry, too much noise here to ask verbally!
Sarah Zoen
01:19:31
Eliza, we don't go into what foods to avoid but we do have initiatives that push for sustainability in commodities like palm
ElizaStrode
01:21:54
