For a long time social compliance and certifications have been a part of our purchasing/supplier conditions. Compliance of these conditions is implemented in our Supplier Information System. Every supplier and product is validated and controlled. If this is not the fact, action is taken. We work on improvement together with certification schemes, like GlobalGAP, MSC and ASC, to create a better chain of custody certification and to get more transparency and traceability. In our opinion living wage and social aspects should be an addition to these schemes. Jumbo cannot do this by itself. So we’d like to use this opportunity and reach out other partners and stakeholders in the food chain, especially the shrimp sector to work together with us.
