Responsible Sourcing

Today’s consumers and stakeholders want to know what is in their food, where it came from and how it was made. Campbell’s Real Food Philosophy confirms our commitment to these expectations and to creating an ethical and sustainable supply chain. To support this commitment, Campbell has created a Responsible Sourcing Program, which is focused on mitigating social and environmental risks in our supply chain and ensuring that our suppliers share this commitment.

Responsible Sourcing Supplier Code

The foundation of our Responsible Sourcing Program is our Responsible Sourcing Supplier Code. These guidelines summarize our fundamental expectations of our suppliers and their manufacturing facilities. All suppliers and their facilities – including subcontracting and packaging facilities – are expected to uphold these standards.

A key area of focus in our Responsible Sourcing Program is the mitigation of poor employment practices in our supply chain including forced labor and child labor.  In 2016 the Consumer Goods Forum (CGF) adopted a resolution recognizing the issue of forced labor as “one of the most pressing social issues of our times”  and pledging to strive to eradicate it from the industry’s value chains.

This resolution focuses on 3 priority principles to counter problematic employment practices:

  1. Every worker should have freedom of movement
  2. No worker should pay for a job
  3. No worker should be indebted or coerced to work.

We are committed to adopting these principles and they are included in more detail in our Responsible Sourcing Supplier Code.
