The IUF Food Processing Division was formally created in 2017 with adoption of the Division from IUF's highest governing body – the IUF Congress. The IUF Food Processing Division seeks to address the issues workers face in this sector that cut across companies operating in the food processing industry: health and safety, financial short-termism and its impacts, declining or stagnant wages, migrant worker rights, etc. The Division further promotes education and mobilization of current membership as well as organizing of workers who are not already union members to increase union membership and power within this industrial sector. The Division will also focus directly on major companies in the food processing sector to strengthen union coordination internationally in those companies and consolidate or secure recognition of IUF affiliates.
