Supply Chain Transparency
STATEMENT ON CALIFORNIA TRANSPARENCY IN SUPPLY CHAINS ACT OF 2010 AND U.K. MODERN SLAVERY ACT
Fresh, Inc., is opposed to slavery, human trafficking, and forced labor at any level, and we are committed to ensuring that the manufacturers and suppliers we work with meet our ethical standards and commitments in this regard.
1. Fresh engages in verification of its product supply chains to evaluate and address risks of human trafficking and slavery. This verification is conducted through internal risk assessments and audits by third parties.
2. Fresh conducts independent announced audits of its suppliers to evaluate their compliance with our standards for human trafficking and slavery. This audit is conducted on all new vendors that manufacture product or manufacture any type of packing or collateral component for Fresh. All new vendors must pass the audit before business is awarded. Fresh also selects certain existing vendors to be subject to continued audits on a periodic basis. Fresh uses a social accountability checklist that audits the supplier’s practices relating to child labor, forced labor, discrimination, wage, and working conditions.
3. Fresh requires all finished goods and key materials suppliers to certify compliance with its Supplier’s Code of Conduct, including that materials incorporated into Fresh products comply with the laws regarding human trafficking and slavery of the country or countries in which the suppliers are doing business.
4. Fresh maintains internal accountability standards and procedures for contractors and suppliers failing to meet company standards regarding human trafficking and slavery. Specifically, Fresh’s audit procedures require each vendor to pass the social accountability audit in order to continue doing business with Fresh. 5. Fresh does not at this time provide company employees and management with specific training on human trafficking and slavery.
