Responsible Sourcing

Tradin Organic works together with organic farmers and processors around the globe to guarantee sustainable organic production practices and full traceability, throughout the entire supply chain of our ingredients. Every day, thousands of farmers and workers are involved in producing our organic ingredients. Looking beyond the organic certification, we work hand-in-hand with our suppliers to help guarantee safe and fair labor conditions for everyone involved in producing our organic ingredients.

Decent Labor Conditions

Decent Labor Conditions

At Tradin Organic, we care about providing safe and decent jobs for our workers. We expect our suppliers to show the same commitment to safe and fair working conditions, and require all suppliers to sign our Supplier Partner Code of Conduct. By signing this document, our suppliers agree to treat their workers fairly and respectfully. Our code of conduct is based on the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights. These principles cover the most essential labor issues, such as fair wages, working hours, leave entitlement, health & safety, etc.

Social Certifications

Social Certifications

In addition to our code of conduct, we also push to have an independent verification of labor conditions in our supply chains. This means having third-party audits at our own facilities and at our suppliers’ facilities. These audits are based on a selection of social standards and certifications. 

As we have a large variety of products and origins, we work with different social certifications to help guarantee fair working conditions. For each supply chain, we select the most appropriate social certification based on product, origin, farmer organization, etc. For example, we prefer working with Fairtrade certification for our smallholder organic cocoa farmers, whereas a SMETA-audit is more relevant for our organic sunflower processing facility in Bulgaria. 

We apply strict criteria when selecting the social certifications for our supply chains. We expect the certification to cover each of the topics in our code of conduct. Additionally, we require that the certification procedure involves an independent third-party audit. Tradin Organic is also a member of the Supplier Ethical Data Exchange (SEDEX). This platform allows us to monitor the social audits in our supply chain and provide transparency to our customers. 

As we are expanding our range of organic products, we continuously add new suppliers to our network. Our portfolio of organic suppliers with social certifications is growing accordingly. We are working constantly with our suppliers and partners to obtain and manage the social certifications for our organic supply chains.
