1 farmers must get the results of their effort;
2 employees must be valued and have the ability to live a good and dignified life; and
3 consumers have the right to obtain our finest crops.
4 We have never bargained with illegal organizations and will never do so.
5 We want to build a healthy economy in which labour is valued and there is no space for speculation.
