Oxfam is a global movement of people working together to end the injustice of poverty.
That means we tackle the inequality that keeps people poor. Together we save, protect and rebuild lives. When disaster strikes, we help people build better lives for themselves, and for others. We take on issues like land rights, climate change and discrimination against women. And we won’t stop until every person on the planet can enjoy life free from poverty.
We are an international confederation of 20 organizations (affiliates) working together with partners and local communities in the areas of humanitarian, development and campaigning, in more than 90 countries.
Our team in Thailand is part of the wider Oxfam Asia platform. We work in collaboration with strategic partners to advocate for reducing inequality, promote sustainability of the food system and gender equality. The Food Justice Team now operates influencing projects on sustainable food production and consumption, and sustainable fisheries. Our key approaches are campaigning with urban consumers, private sector engagement and CSO coalition strengthening.
The Private Sector Engagement Officer will play a vital role in the Food Justice team, particularly to the success of the project “Consumers and Retailers Driving Sustainable Food Market in Thailand in the Seafood, Chicken and for Banana Supply Chains” which is funded by the European Union under the SWITCH Asia II Programme, and the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida) from January 2018 – December 2021. The project goal is to enable an overall food market transformation in Thailand that requires food safety, environmentally sustainable and socially ethical production as standards.
The project has 4 main components:
Result 1: Women and men urban consumers in the target cities and online platforms increasingly demand target food products that meet sustainable and equitable sourcing standards from retailers.
Result 2: Retailers introduce more sustainable and equitable sourcing standards in the target food supply chains.
Result 3: MSMEs of food producers and suppliers strengthen production capacities and sustainable sourcing for supplying retailers and traditional wet markets.
Result 4: Existing and new multi-stakeholder platforms (MSPs) are strengthened to influence large agribusiness’ practice and government policies for SCP in target food supply chains.
