HelloFresh requires its suppliers to represent and warrant that they comply with all applicable laws and its Ethical Trading Policy. This Ethical Trading Policy defines labor practices that HelloFresh deems unacceptable, both within the company and in its supply chains. The Ethical Trading Policy prohibits forced or bonded labor (including any form of modern slavery or human trafficking), child labor, discrimination, harassment, harsh or inhumane treatment, and excessive working hours. It also requires suppliers to provide respect for worker rights, a safe and hygienic workplace, and timely payment of wages.
In addition, HelloFresh conducts supplier audits, described below, in order to verify that its suppliers are complying with these labor standards. HelloFresh may utilize independent third parties to conduct audits when circumstances require.
