Ireland-based produce company Fyffes has denied any involvement in a recent attack on a union boss at one of its Honduran melon subsidiaries.

Union general secretary Moisés Sanchez said he was attacked by armed assailants who said he would “pay the consequences” unless he ceased his union activities.

But In a statement sent to Fresh Fruit Portal, Fyffes distanced itself from any involvement in the incident.

“Fyffes is aware that this attack took place and we hope that the Honduran police will investigate it. We can confirm that the company had no involvement whatsoever with it,” the company said.
