Clover Leaf does not tolerate human trafficking or slavery and remains committed to keeping such practices out of our supply chain.
A number of recent articles disclosed human rights infractions of certain supply chains which is a sad and sobering reminder that human trafficking issues can exist. These investigations have not revealed any connection to tuna fisheries or our supply chain. We conduct business ethically and honestly, and in a manner that respects individuals, their communities and the environment. We expect the same from those with whom we work. Clover Leaf requires that our suppliers operate with similar values and adhere to the requirements within our Supplier Code of Conduct in order to maintain a relationship with us. All factories we work with must adhere to Clover Leaf social standards addressing child and slave labour, safety, wages, discrimination, free choice, regular employment and working hours. As part of the our supplier Code of Conduct, our suppliers certify that materials incorporated into our products comply with the laws regarding slavery and human trafficking of the country or countries in which they are doing business. We ensure that suppliers have received and understand the Code of Conduct and facilities are audited by a third party to ensure their continued compliance.
Our organization has made a $1.0 million commitment over the next ten years to help eliminate global slavery through the Not For Sale organization.
