A new report has been released which investigates poverty within the supply chain of the UK’s biggest supermarkets, leading Asda to make a series of commitments to ethically minded growers.

Produced jointly by Oxfam and International Procurement and Logistics (IPL), the Asda-owned importer of fresh produce, the report, titled Exploring the Links Between International Business and Poverty Reduction, analyses the fresh produce export sector in Kenya, specifically in relation to the production of green beans and cut flowers. IPL said the study had helped it to gain a greater insight into the issues affecting workers and farmers within this sector, and the best ways to resolve them.
