2015-2017 Independent External Monitoring and Independent External Verification Reports of Shared Hazelnut Supply Chain in Turkey: Nestle, Balsu, and Olam
2015-2017 Nesté Independent External Monitoring Reports and Independent External Verification Reports of Cocoa Supply Chain in Côte d’Ivoire.
A new Fair Labor Association report shares the results of a detailed evaluation of the Child Labor Monitoring and Remediation System (CLMRS) implemented by Nestlé in its cocoa supply chain in Côte d’Ivoire.
The evaluation, conducted as part of the 2018-2019 due diligence cycle during March and April of 2019, included the collection of primary information to assess whether the cocoa farmers, workers, and their families have benefited from the CLMRS interventions based on their perception of whether and how the interventions are impacting child labor.
The FLA outlines the findings of research to test interventions designed to protect workers in the supply chains of three affiliates. The evaluation, called a social impact assessment, included interventions executed by Nestlé and its two suppliers, Balsu and Olam, in the hazelnut supply chain in Turkey and identified the most effective at upholding workers’ rights.
The Fair Labor Association commissioned this study to explore the relationship between the procurement price and working conditions in hazelnut production in Turkey (with a special focus on child labor and forced labor), and review different actors’ roles in the supply chain, as part of the project “Piloting the USDA Guidelines for Eliminating Child Labor and Forced Labor in the Hazelnut Supply Chain in Turkey”.
