From Food To Flowers: The Push For Supply Chain Transparency

Try to figure out exactly where fresh products come from in a grocery store. The stickers may say “Mexico” or “Colombia,” but those are big places, and labels like this don’t give much insight. Research online; the information isn’t there. Try with a few other products, and you’re likely to find the same thing. Companies are not always forthcoming about where their products are sourced, and when the curtain is pulled back, scandals — including poor-quality products and unsafe working conditions — often come to light.
