Press release: Bacardi shows reluctance to combat deadly kidney disease

15 July 2015

Bacardi can significantly improve working conditions in the Central American sugarcane industry, thus preventing new cases of the deadly kidney disease Chronic Kidney Disease of non-Traditional causes (CKDnT). These are the findings of the revealing new report ‘Give them a break’ that Fairfood International, the Dutch trade union federation CNV Internationaal and the Central American Institute for Social Studies (ICAES) published today. The three civil society organisations are calling upon the multinational spirits company to take positive action to improve, and in some cases save, the lives of thousands of workers employed in their supply chains.
