The California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010 (SB 657), which went into effect on January 1, 2012, in the State of California, requires that retailers and manufacturers disclose their efforts to eliminate slavery and human trafficking within their supply chains. The goal of this legislation is to provide information to consumers about how companies manage their supply chains so they can make more informed decisions.
At Seaboard Foods, we are strongly committed to producing food that ensures the well-being of our people, animals, the environment, and the communities we call home. To this end, Seaboard Foods prohibits all forms of human trafficking as outlined in our Code of Business Conduct. In addition to our own actions, we hold all of our contractors, suppliers and vendors to these same high standards.
To protect the fundamental dignity of workers, Seaboard Foods is focused on preventing situations that can put workers at risk of forced labor, and we believe that awareness of Seaboard Foods’ Anti-Human Trafficking Compliance Program and methods of identifying and reporting potential violations are critical to the success of the program.
