Microphone What drives children to work in agriculture?

Recorded during a Q+A session at Innovation Forum’s recent ethical trade and human rights conference, Elaine McKay, international affairs director at JTI, speaks with Toby Webb about the challenges around child labour in agricultural supply chains.

They discuss the need for brands to get to know their grower-suppliers, and how shorter supply chains and vertical integration can help. As McKay points out, any company that has agriculture commodities in its supply chain has child labour risks, and that is the only realistic starting point for addressing the challenge.

Here is a chance to listen to their session in full.
