Modern slavery is a hidden problem and a devastating reality for men, women and children in countries globally, including highly developed countries. Whilst Modern Slavery is a crime under Australian law, incidents of modern slavery have been identified as occurring in Australia as well as in the supply chains of Australian businesses.
Modern slavery is an umbrella term for a number of serious, exploitative work practices that can include any situations of severe mistreatment or deceptive recruiting for labour or services where a person cannot refuse or leave work because of threats, violence, coercion, abuse of power or deception.
Conga Foods has a long-standing commitment to corporate responsibility. Modern slavery practices are major violations of human rights and serious crimes and will not be tolerated in our operations. We are committed to working with our suppliers and stakeholders to assess potential areas of risk, to ensure transparency and to take necessary measures for the prevention of any forms of slavery or human rights offences across our operations and supply chain.
This applies to all persons working for or on behalf of Conga Foods, in any capacity, including employees, directors, officers, agency workers, contractors, consultants, suppliers and any other third-party representatives and their associated operations.
Conga Foods expects all who have, or who are seeking to have, a business relationship with us, to familiarise themselves with the attached Policy and to act in a way that is consistent with its intent.
