Internship: data analysis

At Fairfood, we seek to accelerate the shift to a sustainable food system. We do so by working with companies to develop smart solutions to fight poverty and make food businesses sustainable for everyone – including farmers, whose interests can be easily overlooked within long, complex international supply chains.

Our first stop before diving into every single project? The ALIGN platform. As a guidance tool for agri-food companies, ALIGN aims to reduce the complexity surrounding decent wages and incomes. The tool has been jointly developed by leading organisations and experts – read more here – with the aim of directing users to relevant resources, tools and partners. That means: reliable data that is presented in a simple and comparable way.
