Farmers victims of large-scale distribution, the investigation by Presadiretta on the ‘unfair price’: here are the contracts that starve producers – video preview

During the lockdown, i supermarkets they did a golden business: the sales went up 9% with a peak of 22% for fresh products and vegetable prices have increased for the consumer by up to 8.4%. But for the Italian producers there was no gain: they continued to sell fruit and vegetables below the cost of production. Who really earned it? Has anyone speculated on the prices of our food? And after the lockdown, are prices back to what they were before?

The answers in a Presadiretta survey on foodstuffs and the large-scale distribution, to understand what role all the protagonists of the supply chain play, what are the real relations of power and why during the lockdown for us consumers the prices of fruit and vegetables have increased at a rate 40 times higher than that of inflation. In the episode on the air tomorrow night on Rai Tre, Presadiretta he talked about the closed and complex world of auctions on food products. How do they work and what is their impact on the entire supply chain, the rights of those who work there and the quality of the products?

And again, at the end of the chain there is an underwater world of men and women who work the land, exploited and without rights. Hundreds of thousands of day laborers, often irregular foreigners, victims of the gang gang and under the blackmail of a real system. Presadiretta also showed the positive models of the new food supply chains, where laborers, producers and supermarkets work together to produce quality food, ethical and respecting everyone’s rights. Finally, a trip to the hinterland of Tuscany, between the hills of Chianti and Montalcino, in the most beautiful villas in Italy, where until a few months ago thousands of foreigners organized fairytale weddings.

Support never like in this moment
we need you.

In these weeks of pandemic, we journalists, if we do our job conscientiously, we carry out a public service. Also for this reason, every day here at we are proud to offer hundreds of new contents for free to all citizens: news, exclusive insights, interviews with experts, surveys, videos and much more. All this work, however, has a great economic cost. Advertising, at a time when the economy is at a standstill, offers limited revenues. Not in line with the access boom. This is why I ask those who read these lines to support us. To give us a minimum contribution, equal to the price of a cappuccino per week, which is essential for our work.
