Sustain Bridging the Gap Six approaches to Bridge the Gap

Championing a fair wage in farming and beyond

We need fair wages throughout the system and on both sides of the gap. Bridging the Gap has a vision that sees the producer getting a fair price for their product and buying power for the eater.

Sustain’s report Unpicking Food Prices shows that farmers receive less than 1% of profits if supplying a supermarket chain. Producers supplying Better Food Traders, on the other hand, get a fairer price.

We need the food and farming movement to join those calling for a real living wage throughout the system and beyond, that empowers people to make the right choices and to live out their values when they shop and eat and support farmers to do the right thing for climate and nature.  

This approach cuts across all pilots where we are advocating for a fair wage and fair price unilaterally.
