The Food Federation and Allied Workers Unions of Zimbabwe (FFAWUZ) was formed in 1995 by a group of unions in the food industry which disassociated themselves from the United Food and Allied Workers Union (UFAWUZ) over serious allegations of misappropriation of union funds. The founding federation’s affiliates were: Baking Industry Workers Union (BIWU); Food Processing Workers Union; Soft Drinks Manufacturing Workers Union; Cold Storage Company Workers Union; Grain Marketing Board Workers Union, Dairy Trades Workers Union; and Meat, Fish, Poultry and Abattoir Workers Union. After serious misunderstandings over the misappropriation of union funds by the then UFAWUZ leadership these unions mooted an idea to establish a reputable workers federation for the food industry that would attract and restore confidence of membership in unionism. The unions pulled out and went on to form FFAWUZ.
