From Production to Plate…
Corporate consolidation and monopolies in agriculture affect us all.
CORPORATE PRICE FIXING
During the COVID-19 epidemic, companies like Pilgrim’s Pride took advantage of tight supply chains by illegally inflating prices.
HIGHER COST TO CONSUMERS
When prices get high in the supermarket, it’s not the producer taking more $ to the bank. It’s packers & processors.
LOWER PRICES FOR THE FAMILY FARMER
Family farmers & ranchers are forced to accept thinner and thinner margins and even losses as the “price-takers”.
ACCESS TO TECHNOLOGY
When the tractor breaks down, farmers need access to the technology to make speedy fixes to preserve their liveliehood. They need the Right to Repair.What is Right to Repair?
