Inequal­i­ty is ram­pant across the glob­al econ­o­my, and the agro-food sec­tor is no excep­tion. At the top, big super­mar­kets and oth­er cor­po­rate food giants dom­i­nate glob­al food mar­kets, allow­ing them to squeeze val­ue from vast sup­ply chains that span the globe, while at the bot­tom the bar­gain­ing pow­er of small-scale farm­ers and work­ers has been steadi­ly erod­ed in many of the coun­tries from which Dutch super­mar­kets and oth­ers from around the world source. The result is wide­spread human suf­fer­ing among the women and men pro­duc­ing our food.
