In 2004, FLA launched a pilot project with Syngenta Seeds Inc., a Swiss agro-business seeking assistance with monitoring of working conditions throughout its global hybrid seed supply chain. Since the project’s launch, FLA has built an in-depth understanding of the tasks and risks involved in hybrid seed production, and developed and tested a monitoring system and agriculture specific benchmarks. Syngenta worked with FLA over a period of four years and demonstrated great strides in integrating reccomendations into their compliance program. Syngenta is now an FLA Participating Company.
