The rally in Burlington’s Leddy Park Saturday was hosted by Migrant Justice, a farm workers advocacy group.

In 2017, Ben and Jerry’s signed an agreement that established labor standards, like sick time and adequate housing.

The group is now calling on Hannaford Supermarkets to join the campaign.

“Myself, I used to be a dairy worker for five years, and I suffered discrimination and was fired without just cause,” Jose Ignacio said, translated from Spanish to English by Marita Canedo. “I was sick, I had a dental problem, and I couldn’t go to the doctor.

Migrant Justice is taking the campaign on the road, travelling throughout New England from now until Oct. 24

Despite Covid impacting restaurants, Fonterra’s food service business has reached a milestone to become a $3 billion annual revenue business.
