    ABSTRACT: Recent events concerning dairy industry working conditions, including signage of the “Milk with Dignity” agreement, suggest that the industry could be moving toward the introduction of a food label certifying labor conditions, such as the “Fair Food” label found on select fresh produce in the southeastern United States. This study employs a discrete choice experiment to assess consumers’ valuation for milk with a label certifying labor conditions under different information settings.  Results indicate that consumers are willing to pay more for milk produced under certified labor conditions. Furthermore, the willingness to pay increases when more information about the label definition and current dairy labor conditions are conveyed.
