On December 17, the Meeting with Founding Organizations of the Alianza Hortofrutícola Internacional para el Fomento de la Responsabilidad Social (International Fruit and Vegetable Alliance for Social Responsibility, AHIFORES) was held.
During this meeting, the organization introduced the results on the operation of this 2020 year, resulting from the work of AHIFORES and the founding organizations, such as Veggies From Mexico, to promote the compliance with Labor Rights contained in T-MEC.
With regards to the main challenges of the farming sector in terms of Social Responsibility, they addressed those related to the signature of the Agreement between Mexico, the US and Canada, which entered into force last July 1° of this year.
AHIFORES also shared with attendees the availability of the SIDEAR T-MEC Platform, which was designed by the organization, so that all farming growers can self-evaluate themselves and understand the risks of their company in terms of Labor and Foreign Trade under T -MEC.
