Ethical Sourcing Certification by SQFI

We are currently living the “prosumer” world – as a Consumer, we utilize their stake in the market to advocate for safer, better quality products, and to show how those products are mad. Scandals connected to forced labor, child labor, pollution, and lack of corporate transparency directly impact the choices we consumers make, which creates a ripple effect throughout the supply chain. The Ethical Sourcing Standard (SS) effectively reduces these negative risks by addressing each of the said issues.

This is a Voluntary supplement for companies who are committed to ensuring socially and environmentally responsible practices in food production. The ESS is a system that combines growing and processing food with environmental and social stewardship. This system embraces ethical and transparent practices, with care taken in the treatment of those who grow, harvest, and manufacture food across the supply chain, and the respect given our health as consumers.


Reason to get CERTIFIED?

The Ethical Sourcing Standard for food harvesting and manufacturing is a tiered certification program that provides a set of benchmarks showing an organization’s commitment to ethical conduct in the following set of areas:

Social management programs under the ESS safeguard against discrimination and harassment in the workplace, promote transparent and lawful wage practices, and advocate fair labor practices that are non-exploitative and free of forced labor.

Water use, Energy consumption, waste management, and pollution prevention are critical to ethical business practices. The ESS addresses these issues, as well as occupational health and safety, regulatory compliance, equipment maintenance, and incident management to verify safe working conditions and reduce negative environmental impacts.

This critical component of the ESS includes internal audits, monitoring, record keeping, and management review. Here, corrective and preventative action takes place and senior company officials address employee concerns.

The Ethical Sourcing Standards allow for flexible, three-tier certification options, each with a growing demonstrating of the ESS’s provisions. Companies can choose the level of certification to pursue and are awarded certification upon successful completion of their audit.
