Finnwatch investigated the responsibility of two tuna companies, Thai Union Manufacturing and Unicord, and a fruit processing company called Natural Fruit. All three companies produce to the global market and have well-known international customers.
 
In in-depth interviews with Finnwatch researchers, the workers of the factories – the majority of whom are migrants from neigbouring countries – described the use of forced and child labour, unlawfully low wages, excessive overtime, abuse by managers and unsafe working conditions.
 
The report Halvalla on hintansa ("Cheap has a high price") was launched in Finland and Thailand on Monday, 21 January.
