California Transparency in Supply Chain Act
As part of Viterra's core values of honesty, integrity, trust and high performance, the Company's Sustainability Commitment, and in support of the corporate Code of Business Conduct, Viterra Inc. and its subsidiaries doing business in California are committed to complying with the California Transparency in Supply Chain Act. Viterra also supports the elimination of slavery and human trafficking from product supply chains.
Viterra's raw material suppliers are primarily producers/farmers with the vast majority of grain origination volumes coming from Canada, Australia and the United States where legal requirements regarding elimination of human trafficking and slavery are robust. On this basis, the Company believes the current risk of these issues within the supply chain to be very low.
Viterra's Code of Business Conduct supports and promotes the principles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Viterra is currently updating its training program for the Code of Business Conduct. The Company does not currently require direct supplier certification, conduct supplier audits or third party verification with respect to human trafficking and slavery but is considering what steps it may take in the future in this regard.
