House Foods America disclosure regarding anti-slavery and human trafficking - As of October 27, 2022
House Foods America Corporation (HFA) supports the goals of the California Transparency in Supply Chain Act (CTSCA). We are committed to conducting its business in a lawful and ethical manner and expects our suppliers to conduct themselves in the same manner. Under the law, large manufacturers and retailers are required to disclose their efforts to eradicate slavery and human trafficking within their supply chain.
HFA will not tolerate human trafficking or slavery in any part of our organization and direct supply chain. In an effort to prevent slavery and human trafficking, we have implemented a policy against such activities in our supply chains. In addition, HFA analyzes our supply chains in order to evaluate address risks of slavery and human trafficking inherent in those activities. Also, we require direct suppliers to certify that materials incorporated into the products comply with the laws regarding slavery and human trafficking laws.
HFA’s internal auditing team audit our major suppliers to determine if they are complying with our company standards aimed at ensuring human trafficking is not tainting our products.
Managers of the HFA’s purchasing team who manage a supplier relationship will continue to be provided with in-person or online compliance training. The training covers our policy against slavery and human trafficking and CTSCA’s purpose, and importance of the compliance to our business.
