Fyffes given a month to resolve dispute in Honduras

Monday, August 7, 2017

Fyffes, the Dublin-based tropical fruits company taken over in February by a Japanese group, has been given until next month to resolve a dispute over alleged worker exploitation in its Central American operations or face being expelled from an influential ethical body.

The British government-sponsored Ethical Trading Initiative, of which Fyffes has been a member since 2002, last week gave Fyffes a five-week extension, until September 8, to reach agreement with the International Union of Farmworkers on the treatment of the fruit group’s melon workers in Honduras.
