Fyffes melon dispute escalates in Honduras

Friday, February 17, 2017

Ireland-based Fyffes is preparing to answer allegations of worker exploitation at its Central American operations just as its $8001 million takeover by a Japanese group is completed.

The UK government-sponsored Ethical Trading Initiative), of which Fyffes has been a member since 2002, had called on the company to present an action plan by February 3 concerning working conditions of melon plantation workers in Honduras.
