We closely monitor our producers’ employment practices and disclose any involvement of children in the production.

 

Freedom of Association, Right to Equality and Non-Discrimination. We developed an effective monitoring system which guarantees us that any violation against these human rights within our supply chain will be disclosed and the equal rights for each individual are implemented.

Creating Awareness of Fair Practices is essential within the fair supply chain. We promote fair practices with information about ourselves, the products and its production.
