Evaluation of Supply Chain
See's Candies purchases ingredients and packaging for its products from over 150 different suppliers, with a vast majority located in the United States. On an ongoing basis, See's Candies conducts evaluations of its supply chain and supplier practices to assess the risk of human trafficking and slavery. As suppliers change, additional evaluations are conducted as needed. Evaluations are conducted by See's Candies product sourcing personnel and not by a third party.
It is a condition of doing business with See's Candies that each direct supplier within the See's Candies supply chain agrees to comply with applicable laws (including laws against slavery and human trafficking). This condition is incorporated into our standard terms and conditions governing every purchase order issued by our company. In addition, we require that direct suppliers periodically acknowledge in writing their understanding of our policy requiring compliance with all applicable laws.
Audits of suppliers may be conducted by See's Candies personnel or by a third party on our behalf, and may be scheduled or unannounced at our discretion. See's Candies reserves the right to suspend or terminate the relationship with any supplier for failure to comply with applicable laws or to cooperate in any such inspection.
Certification of Compliance with Laws
See's Candies requires direct suppliers to acknowledge their understanding of our policy requiring compliance with all applicable laws (including laws against slavery and human trafficking) and to provide certification that products delivered to See's Candies are in compliance with such laws.
Any supplier unable to certify its compliance with applicable laws and See's Candies policy may be placed under action plans to address all discrepancies or be replaced as a supplier at the sole discretion of See's Candies.
We reserve the right to suspend or terminate any relationship with any employee or supplier for a failure to comply with See's Candies policies or with applicable laws or, in the case of a supplier, to cooperate in any inspection of its facilities.
See's Candies provides employees who have direct responsibility for supply chain management with training on our human rights policies, including policies regarding slavery and human trafficking, particularly with respect to mitigating the issue of human rights abuse within the product supply chain.
