Nestlé and Verité: Mapping seafood supply chains to identify human rights risks
Nestlé S.A. is a multinational food and drink processing conglomerate corporation headquartered in Switzerland. It is the largest food company in the world, and it sources fish and seafood from around the globe. Nestlé is working towards a future where it can verify that the seafood it sources comes from fisheries and farms that meet its Responsible Sourcing Standard requirements or are progressing toward meeting them through engagement in improvement projects.
Verité is an independent, non-profit, civil society organization that partners with corporations, governments, and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) to illuminate labor rights violations in supply chains and remedy them to the benefit of workers and companies alike.
