Fair World Project Podcast “Get Big or Get Out: Dairy Farmers of America”

Fiar World Project
November 30th 2021

Fair World Project invites you to listen to For a Better World episode 5 and hear Claire Kelloway of Open Markets Institute unpack Dairy Farmers of America’s growing corporate power and how that push to “get big or get out” impacts farmers, workers, and consumers.

Dairy is big business. And while farmers have historically organized cooperatives to build power and market shares, now there is one cooperative – Dairy Farmers of America – that has gotten so big and powerful there are questions about whose interests they are actually serving.


Fair World Project (FWP) is a non-profit that advocates for fair trade policies that supports small-scale farmers, artisans and workers by promoting organic and fair trade practices and transparent third-party certification. Through consumer education and advocacy, FWP supports dedicated fair trade producers and brands, and insists on integrity in use of the term “fairness” certifications, labeling and marketing.
