Fruits, vegetables sold in U.S. are products of forced labor

A new study in Nature Food calls attention to the need for better systems to track forced labor in food supply chains. The study — a methodological advance — reports on the development of a new scoring system that identifies the risk of forced labor for fruits and vegetables sold in the United States. It finds a high risk of forced labor, but also scattered and incomplete data sources that limit action. Forced labor in agriculture is a threat to the sustainability of food systems.
