APETITO HAS joined the Ethical Trading Initiative (ETI) to support worker rights around the globe. The company, which provides frozen meals to hospitals, care homes and local authorities, has said it is committed to improving working conditions throughout their supply chain.
Apetito also recently committed to providing the Living Wage to 100% of its employees by 2016.
“All employees, wherever they work, should be free from exploitation and discrimination, and enjoy conditions of freedom, security and equity,” said Paul Freeston, Chief Executive.
In joining the ETI, Apetito joins other brands such as Tesco, Sainsbury’s and M&S. Member companies are expected to demonstrate a clear commitment to ethical trade; integrate ethical trade into their core business practices; work with suppliers to drive year-on-year improvements to working conditions; and to report openly and accurately about their activities and achievements.
