Nestlé publishes progress report on responsible hazelnut sourcing

Nestlé has published its annual progress report (pdf, 896 Kb) on hazelnut sourcing that focuses on actions taken by the company’s suppliers to implement its Responsible Sourcing Guideline (pdf, 2 Mb) requirement at farm level.

The report details how Nestlé worked with its two tier-one suppliers in Turkey last year to trace and register the 4,000 hazelnut farms that supply it. The companies also supported projects to eliminate child labour, promote health and safety and good agricultural practices.

Nestlé is affiliated with the Fair Labor Association (FLA), which conducts annual independent assessments of the company’s hazelnut supply chain, and has just published its latest report.
