Supply Chain Transparency
Supply Chain Transparency Disclosure – California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010
The California Transparency in Supply Chains Act was signed into law and went into effect on January 1, 2012. The Act requires certain companies to disclose their efforts, if any, to eradicate slavery and human trafficking from their direct supply chains. The required disclosures relate to five specific areas: verification, audits, certification, internal accountability, and training.
Lunardi's Markets supports the California Transparency in Supply Chains Act and remains committed to comply with all applicable laws.
We continuously seek opportunities to verify our product supply chains to evaluate and address any risks of human trafficking and slavery.
We evaluate on an ongoing basis what, if any, audits may be conducted to determine supplier compliance with standards prohibiting human trafficking and slavery in our supply chains.
Currently, our process requires our suppliers to confirm that the materials incorporated into the merchandise they supply to us comply with applicable laws regarding slavery and human trafficking. This would include any subcontractor used in the manufacturing or distribution of any of our products or merchandise.
Our process further requires our employees and contractors to comply with our anti-slavery and trafficking standards, which prohibits the use of forced labor in our supply chain. Failure to comply may result in discipline up to, and including, termination of employment or contract.
As we continue to enhance our program, we are examining targeted training opportunities and explore processes to verify, and audit, certifications to ensure compliance.
