California Transparency in Supply Chain Act of 2010
Johnsonville, LLC supports the goals of the California Transparency in Supply Chain Act of 2010 (“Act”) and strives to be an example in eradicating human trafficking and forced labor risks throughout its supply chain. As a company that does business globally in more than 40 countries, we are committed to protecting workers’ rights through every part of our supply chain. To that end, Johnsonville chooses the best available suppliers - those who lead not only in terms of the quality of their products and services, but also by way of their social responsibility. Johnsonville does not tolerate the use of forced labor, human trafficking or slavery.
As a responsible corporate citizen, Johnsonville’s actions in support of the Act include the following:
Johnsonville has implemented the Johnsonville Supplier Code of Conduct for its suppliers. The code sets forth and establishes non-negotiable minimum standards for Suppliers to Johnsonville in the areas of Legal Compliance, Labor and Human Rights. Suppliers are required to take actions to eradicate the risk of human trafficking and forced labor throughout their supply chain. All suppliers fulfilling purchase orders are confirming their agreement to comply with our code of conduct. While we do not currently use third party auditors to verify compliance, we reserve the right to do so.
Johnsonville may request to audit suppliers if there is reason to believe they are not in compliance with our Supplier Code of Conduct. Johnsonville does not routinely conduct audits without cause. Johnsonville does not currently use third party auditors, but reserves the right to do so. If an audit determines that a supplier is not in compliance with our Supplier Code of Conduct we will give the supplier the opportunity to rectify the deficiency. Based on the severity of concerns, measures may include documented corrective actions or termination of our relationship with the supplier.
The Johnsonville Code of Conduct requires suppliers to comply with all laws regarding anti-slavery and human trafficking of the country or countries in which they are doing business. Suppliers are required to certify their compliance upon request. Johnsonville reserves the right to terminate any business relationship with suppliers who do not comply with the law.
