Finnish food retailer supplied from factories located in Thailand high-risk areas

Share this article

Investigation by Finnwatch shows that Finnish food retailer Tokmanni has failed to carry out effective monitoring of its suppliers' responsibility policies and practices.

The Finnish food retailer Tokmanni purchased food products from two providers sourcing from factories in Thailand that have been involved in labour rights violations. Although the retailer is part of the Business Social Compliance Initiative and bound to the BSCI Code of Conduct, none of the intermediates were part of the scheme. The one-off nature of the purchases reduced also the leverage of the company over suppliers and made a proper due diligence process throughout the supply chain more difficult.
