SUPPLY CHAIN POLICY

Our Supply Chain Policy plays an integral role in Quirch Foods’ success.

We view our suppliers, vendors, and contractors as valued partners who play an integral role in the organization’s success.

We aim to demonstrate our vision for ensuring long-term value creation across our partner ecosystem through our supply chain policy. We look to develop strategic partnerships that are mutually beneficial to both parties in the long term. Quirch Foods’ commitment to sustainable and ethical behavior is a core part of the business, and we expect our partners to also act by our policy.

Our goal is to minimize supply chain risks while ensuring that our entire business operation aligns with our core legal, environmental, and social values.

Compliance with all applicable laws and regulations includes adherence to all applicable environmental laws and regulations regarding operations or services provided. It is expected that our business and all affiliated partners also commit to conducting operations and business practices consistent with international law, including the elimination of child labor, forced labor, and workplace discrimination.

Suppliers must comply with their contractual obligations and perform their activities while respecting social development and environmental protection. Our supply chain policy is meant to act as a basic framework for our suppliers to follow. We are committed to maintaining an open dialogue with our business partners to improve their operations continuously. Quirch Foods will rigorously monitor compliance with the standards in our policy.

Our employees and suppliers must make sound and impartial business decisions to avoid all business dealings that may result in a conflict of interest. We expect our partners to prevent any conflict of interest or corrupt practices, including, but not limited to, bribery, money laundering, and the hiding of illegal funds. If any conflict of interest occurs, Quirch Foods will take appropriate action. Furthermore, we encourage our business partners to promote transparency and accountability to prevent the occurrence of such acts throughout their businesses.

We promote and provide a safe, secure, and healthy workplace for all employees and contractors. Our goal is to give our employees and associated businesses a healthy and accident-free workplace. To mitigate work-related risks, we ask that our partners comply with relevant occupational health and safety rules and regulations and establish organization policies to reduce accidents. We also expect our suppliers to empower their employees with the responsibility to express any health or safety concerns they may have regarding their work environment without retaliation.
