JENNY – CHINA
Jenny explains that they are one of the biggest employers in the area, and as organic farming requires more labor input than non-organic farming, more jobs can be given to the local community. This especially applies to women who aren’t willing or able to go the city and work there: ‘‘At our company we have a female labor union to guarantee the equal rights and interests of these women who are working for us. Each employee is important for us. Everybody receives a regular and recorded health check as we are paying much attention to our employees’ physical wellbeing. Furthermore, we are supplying our workers with accommodation if they don’t live in the nearby villages. Newly-hired workers receive a complete training on how to work safely in the working field. Most importantly, not having to work with pesticides and herbicides, we can offer all of our workers a safe working environment.
