  3. We will require our primary raw material suppliers to certify that materials incorporated into product produced for La Brea Bakery comply with the laws regarding slavery and human trafficking of the country or countries in which they are doing business.
  4. Our Internal Code of Conduct will prohibit slavery and human trafficking. All facilities are audited for workplace accountability.
  5. We provide company employees and management, who have direct responsibility for supply chain management, training on human trafficking and slavery, particularly with respect to mitigating risks within the supply chains of products.

We reserve the right to verify the Suppliers’ compliance with the Code. If we become aware of any actions or conditions that are not in compliance with the Code, we reserve the right to demand corrective measures. We reserve the right to terminate an agreement with any Supplier who does not comply with the Code. Compliance for the supply chain will be verified by July 31, 2012.
