The Stronger Together Programme in Spain was established in 2019 to support Spanish agri-businesses to address the risk of forced labour within their businesses and supply chain. This is achieved through providing guidance, resources, training and sector wide collaborative programmes. Stronger Together also provides a network for employers, labour providers, industrial associations, NGO’s and other stakeholders to work together to reduce labour exploitation.
“If you want to bring about meaningful change in the lives of the 25 million men, women and children in forced labour, we must take concrete and immediate action. Let’s not just get mad at forced labour, let’s make change happen.”
Guy Ryder, Director General of the International Labour Organization (ILO)
Working in collaboration with Spanish partners and with input and feedback from a range of Spanish horticultural businesses, Stronger Together has developed expert guidance to support businesses to take the necessary steps to mitigate the risks of forced labour. The resources are available free of charge on this website for growers, suppliers, importers and exporters, cooperatives, retailers and other stakeholders to use to help improve their practices and sector.
