Company Ranking32 out of
Kerry Group plc (Kerry), an Irish company that engages in the manufacturing and distribution of food and beverages including dairy, meat, pastries, and ready meals, ranks 32 out of 60 companies. Compared to 2020, the company does not seem to have taken steps to strengthen its performance and disclosure on forced labour issues within its supply chain. As such, its rank has dropped by 17 places. The company’s score is based on its disclosure of a strong supplier code, as well as some disclosure on internal managerial responsibility, risk assessment, a policy prohibiting worker-paid recruitment fees, a grievance mechanism available to workers in the first tier of its supply chain and a monitoring process. However, where the company discloses relatively strong policy commitments, it does not to date provide disclosure on the implementation and outcomes of the same.
The company is encouraged to improve its performance and disclosure on the themes of Traceability & Risk Assessment, Recruitment, and Remedy.
