Improving workers’ livelihoods

Nestlé is against all forms of human rights violations, including labour rights violations. This is outlined in our policy: Nestlé Commitment on Labour Rights in Agricultural Supply Chains (pdf, 200Kb).

As we look at human rights impacts beyond our operations, seven of our 11 salient issues relate to labour rights, and are associated with our agricultural supply chains.
