Vernacare operates to high ethical standards. To demonstrate this, our company is independently audited in compliance with the Ethical Trading Initiative (ETI) Base Code. This is a 9 point, internationally recognised code of labour practice. The audit also encompasses raw material suppliers, requiring compliance with the code in the context of local employment legislation. Vernacare personnel visit raw material suppliers at defined intervals to carry out audits and ensure continued compliance with the code, and our own additional requirements. The scores of our supply chain are reviewed annually and are presented below for your information.
