Earlier this summer, caving to pressure generated by the Fair Food movement’s national boycott, Wendy’s announced its decision to move the vast majority of its tomato purchasing away from Mexican to U.S. and Canadian greenhouses. Contrary to the misinformation released by Wendy’s, including the claim of the”inherent benefits of safe, indoor working conditions” in greenhouse operations, this shift is nothing more than another PR ploy to deceive consumers. We are mobilizing our campuses and communities to pull back the curtain on Wendy’s shameful façade of social responsibility and expose the truth behind the tomato that tops a Dave’s Single.
