California Transparency in Supply Chains Act Information
The E. & J. Gallo Winery is a leading wine and spirits company in the United States and around the world. We comply with federal, state, and foreign laws regarding labor practices in all parts of the world where we operate. On January 1, 2012, a new law came into effect in California called the Transparency in Supply Chains Act (SB 657). The law requires our company and many other large retailers and manufacturers to disclose publicly their efforts, if any, to eradicate slavery and human trafficking from their supply chains. In compliance with this law, the information below relates to our efforts to eliminate human trafficking and slavery in our supply chain.
The vast majority of our suppliers are located in the United States, principally in California. California and, we believe, all other states in the United States, have laws making forced labor and human trafficking a serious crime. So far as we are aware, no supplier to our company, whether located within or without the United States, has ever been accused of engaging in forced labor or human trafficking. We have dedicated Supplier Development and Quality Assurance teams that try to ensure we work only with reputable suppliers. These teams establish guidelines and programs related to quality and product integrity for our main suppliers. In addition, most of our contracts with suppliers require that the supplier conduct its business in accordance with all applicable laws, which would include laws against forced labor and human trafficking. We conduct announced audits and inspections, and we monitor our supply chain to insure that our suppliers meet our high standards. We will terminate our contract with any supplier found to be in violation with our policy on human trafficking and slavery.
To further our efforts to eradicate human trafficking and slavery from our supply chain, we have now asked all suppliers to return a signed statement to us acknowledging that they support the elimination of forced labor and human trafficking. In addition, our supplier contracts now contain an express representation that each supplier will comply fully with all applicable laws prohibiting human trafficking and slavery.
