Supply Chain Transparency
In accordance with:
- Conservation Act 1987, Forests Act 1949 from Department of Conservation, Government of New Zealand.
Organic Riot is committed to doing business in an ethically responsible manner. Our company was founded and built on its foundation of ethics and ethical sourcing. We do this to enhance our community which includes our customers and employees as well as partners that develop, manufacture, and supply products on Organic Riot’s behalf (“suppliers”). We seek to partner with suppliers that embody Organic Riot’s core values in their own operations.
We expect our suppliers to be in full compliance with the applicable laws of the countries and regions where they operate, including all labour laws, and to respect the rights of their employees in accordance with internationally recognised standards and social audits. Organic Riot’s Supplier Code of Conduct, sets out our zero-tolerance policy on any use of forced labour, human trafficking, child labour, harassment, and abuse.
Organic Riot aims to ensure that its employees are knowledgeable of the risks related to assessing possibly harmful ingredients, human trafficking and slavery in the supply chain. To facilitate greater awareness, we provide training to educate those employees on such risks so they are better able to identify and address potential issues in the supply chain as appropriate. We maintain internal accountability standards and procedures for employees who fail to meet our standards of conduct, which align to the values stated in our Code of Conduct.
