Actively protecting our workers
Forced Labour is an issue we here at Winfresh are determined to address at every stage of our supply chain – and to which we have a zero tolerance approach. It’s why we have long-term relationships with our suppliers and farmers and put ethical trading at the forefront of all of our business practices. This is illustrated through our Fairtrade accreditation, membership of the ETI and adherence to its Base Code and through regularly auditing our suppliers, to ensure they meet the specifications for these accreditations.
We also help our farmers to prevent problems before they happen, through working closely with them on farming practices and advising on the management of their workers. As a result of working closely with all our farmers we have a high presence on the farms that supply us – giving us the opportunity to identify any potential vulnerable workers.
