The Coalition of Immokalee Workers in July 2015 announced that Ahold USA, owner of Giant and Stop & Shop, joined the Fair Food Program. Ahold USA pledged that more of its stores would carry Fair Food tomatoes from Florida and said: "Our companies and our customers care about the welfare of workers in our supply chain, and we believe now is the right time to begin an important new chapter in our partnership with the CIW."
CBS News, in an August 2015 report, said that 90 percent of Florida tomatoes were grown on farms that participate in the FFP. However, not all of the tomatoes grown on FFP farms generate the extra 1.5 cents a pound shared between growers and workers. CBS reported that FFP has generated nearly $20 million in additional payments to workers since its introduction in 2011. The FFP plans to expand to farms producing bell peppers during the 2015-16 season.
