Worker Welfare Commitment
Worker Welfare Standards
1. Global Comprehensive Standards
Our standards are based on the International Labor Organization (ILO) Conventions, Global Social Compliance Program (GSCP) Standards, Business Social Compliance Initiative (BSCI) Standards and a collaborative review of agriculture-specific standards from several non-governmental organizations. These standards represent criteria that apply where laws do not exist, are not consistently enforced, or provide lower protection to the workers.
Columbia Fruit Packers has always required that our growers comply with all laws and regulations. Columbia Fruit Packers adopted Worker Welfare standards that apply to all of our growers globally.
2. Zero Tolerance
Columbia Fruit Packers only works with suppliers that not only adhere to applicable local laws but show a commitment to our worker welfare values. There is no tolerance for engaging in the following practices:
- Child labor
- Forced labor
- Human trafficking
- Coercion abuse and harassment
- Health and safety conditions posing immediate risk to life and limb
All identified issues in conflict with the above standards are unacceptable and must be corrected immediately or will result in termination of the relationship with Columbia Fruit Packers.
Independent Grower Audits and Ranch Improvement Plans
Columbia Fruit Packers promises and expects an environment of transparency and information exchange between us and our growers with regards to labor policies, practices and conditions.
- Independent Grower Audits conducted by 3rd Party Auditors

If any issues are identified through the audit process growers are expected to work with Columbia Fruit Packers to create a Ranch Improvement plan. The ranch improvement plan identifies specific changes that will be made to bring employment practices on the ranch into compliance with our standards.
Columbia Fruit Packers has declared our commitment to worker welfare everywhere we grow. We are committed to working with our growers, regional communities, government agencies and non-governmental organizations to develop and enrich the lives of everyone we touch.
