- Working conditions are safe and hygienic
- Child labour shall not be used
- Living wages are paid
- Working hours are not excessive
- No discrimination is practised
- Regular employment is provided

Our company is independently audited to the internationally recognised SMETA standard as are our suppliers. Copies of these audit reports are readily available to our customers.
