Since we grow and harvest around the world, the manufacturing practices, storage and logistics are constantly in the loop of improvement. Also, when it comes to handling, the social responsibility of the people working along the value chain, is always top of mind. Therefore, as a member of Amfori-BSCI, we expect the producers to follow our code of conduct. To refine the handling and transportation of our fruits and vegetables is beyond important, but to care for our people is invaluable.
