As in the case of HACCP, in the short term the direct impact of eco-labelling will be on
the exporters in terms of increased investment to be equipped for environment friendly, to
get a certificate from an accreditation agency and to give training to the staffs. In the
process some of the factories may close down if financial assistance is not provided by
the government which will imply that the workers in the factories and in the whole
production chain will lose their jobs. This will create a pressure on the already crowded
labour market in the rural areas which will have serious livelihood implications for the
poor people thrown out of the industry. While the factory owners will be able to survive
from their savings and other investments the poor processing and other ancillary workers
such as transporters will have to bear the brunt of poverty and destitution. It is likely that
some will be able to diversify in other professions but many will not, particularly those
whose livelihoods depend only on the shrimp processing factories.
