You’re invited! We would like to invite you to our online webinar, Paying a fairer price to farmers - how can companies play their part in closing the living income gap?

The prices farmers around the world receive are often too low to enable them to earn a living income. This Oxfam webinar will explore how companies can become an active part in closing the living income gap by paying fairer prices to small-scale farmers in global food supply chains.

We will present experiences from a pilot in which Swedish retailer Axfood and Norwegian wholesaler Unil paid a premium to support small-scale Basmati rice farmers in Pakistan. We will discuss key lessons learned and also hear from companies who were involved.

How can we reshape food supply chains to that everyone involved may profit?
What is the business case and collective benefits of pursuing fairer prices and a living income?
What are the challenges companies need to overcome to pay fairer prices to farmers?

Confirmed speakers:
Ms. Mira Alestig, Lead Researcher Food & Climate, Oxfam Sweden
Mr. Shahid Tarer, Director, Galaxy Rice Mills
Ms. Kristina Areskog Bjurling, Sustainability Manager, Axfood

Moderator: Mr. Uwe Gneiting, Private Sector Senior Researcher, Oxfam America
