Working Conditions in the Sugarcane Industry in Central America

Fairfood International has published an issue briefing describing working conditions affecting sugar cane workers in Nicaragua. Entitled Treat them Sweet: Working Conditions in Central American Sugarcane Industry, the briefing is based on a longer report written by the Centre for International Development Issues Nijmegen (CIDIN).  This in turn is based on literature reviews and field research and identifies ten so-called ‘vignettes' on food ‘hotspots', - places where food is being produced under questionable social and environmental conditions. Author Prof. dr. P. Hoebink also describes working occupational health hazards in the sugarcane industry in Nicaragua.
