Manufacturers, farms, factories and factory groups are key players in the global supply chain. Often, these producers, or "suppliers," are the first line of defense for protecting workers. They must meet brands' social compliance requirements and uphold brands' codes of conduct in their facilities. FLA Participating Suppliers take the commitment further through their own compliance programs and by committing to implement the same high labor standards as FLA Participating Companies. The joint commitment of brands and the facilities supplying them is essential to improving conditions for workers.
