Human Rights Policy



At the Company, we commit to respecting the human rights as defined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights; the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights²; the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights; and the ILO Declaration on Fundamental Principles and the Rights at Work⁴.


This policy applies to the Company and our business partners, vendors, and suppliers.


We believe that Universal Declaration of Human Rights are fundamental human rights, and we are taking steps to improve our approach across our business. We believe that our business can help to promote human rights through our products and services but also acknowledge that without proper oversight, it can present risks to human rights as well.



Our approach to human rights begins with understanding how our activities, including our products and services, as well as the activities of our business partners, may impact, either positively or negatively, our rightsholders. These include employees and contractors, customers, supply chain workers, and the broader community.


We strive to ensure that the rights of these rightsholders are respected and promoted through our activities and those of our business partners. We work to meet this commitment through the activities outlined below.


Empowering Women: We believe in the equality of opportunity and treatment for all women and men. We are committed to enhancing gender balance in our workforce and empowering women across our value chain. In agricultural communities, women are often under-represented and under-resourced and through our business model we help women farmers develop alternative income streams. This can have positive impacts on their families, their children’s education and health, and can also make them less vulnerable to gender-based violence.


Fair and Safe Work: We believe workers should be treated with dignity, respect, and fairness, and should not be subject to harassment, discrimination, forced labor, or inhumane treatment. We are working continuously to providing a safe, inclusive work environment for our employees and contractors in line with international labour standards wherever we do business. To promote these values across our supply chain, we will implement more robust oversight mechanisms and expectations for our business partners to meet these same standards in their own operations.


Partnerships: We believe in doing business with partners that share our values and

commitments to respect human rights. While we strive to work only with partners that share our human rights commitments, sometimes this might not always be the case. To mitigate risks of human rights violations further down our supply chain, we will strengthen our ongoing partnership due diligence and review process, including a review of potential human rights considerations as part of that due diligence, and use our leverage when partner-related risks are identified.



Human rights at the Company is part of our wider strategy and is implemented through a number of policies and procedures.


Ultimate oversight of human rights at the Company falls with our Chief Executive Officer. Operational oversight of human rights is managed by Company Secretary, in addition to our partners across our business units.


In line with the expectations articulated in the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, employees and other stakeholders can report concerns about human rights and receive remedy though various grievance channels directed to the CEO – via email, website and telephone.


As part of our ongoing commitment to implementing the Guiding Principles, the Company will advance due diligence, assess human rights impact, and incorporate training.
