Nestle Becomes First Food Company to Partner with the Fair Labor Association

Nestle has decided to work with the Fair Labor Association (FLA) to investigate whether children are working on cocoa farms supplying its factories. The FLA is a non-profit multi-stakeholder initiative that works with major companies to improve working conditions in their supply chains. In January the FLA will send independent experts to Cote d’Ivoire to examine Nestle’s cocoa supply chain. The Cote d’Ivoire is the world’s largest exporter of cocoa.

 

Where they find evidence of child labour, the FLA will identify the root causes and advise Nestle how to address them in ways that are sustainable and lasting. The FLA’s role will be to provide expertise to help ensure Nestle’s efforts to eliminate child labour are more effective and transparent. Nestle is applying to become a member of the FLA. It is the first food company to do this.
