"Caught in a trap: The story of poverty wages  behind  Asian shrimp sold in  European supermarket", Apr 2015

Thailand, Bangladesh, Vietnam and India are the biggest suppliersof tropical shrimp to the Netherlands, the United Kingdom and Germany...Fairfood has analysed the supply chains of tropical shrimp at Jumbo, PLUS, ALDI and Lidl and our findings show that most tropical shrimp sold at these retailers comes from Asia, most notably Thailand, Vietnam, Bangladesh and India. Supermarkets have tremendous power over food supply chains and have a responsibility to ensure that human rights are respected in their supply chains, as stated in the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights.
