Company Ranking15 out of
Kerry Group plc (Kerry), an Irish company that provides taste and nutrition solutions and foods such as dairy, meat, pastries, and ready meals, ranks 15th out of 43 companies, disclosing about the same amount of information on its forced labor policies and practices as its peers. Since 2018, Kerry’s score has improved by 15 points because the company updated its supplier code of conduct to prohibit worker-paid recruitment fees and passport retention, requires that its supply chain workers are made aware of the terms and conditions before starting employment, and has its suppliers ensure that their labor providers adhere to the ILO core labor standards. It further improved by disclosing active participation in a multi-stakeholder initiative on forced labor and implementing a risk assessment that incorporates forced labor risks and disclosing the risks identified. The company has an opportunity to improve on the themes of Recruitment, Worker Voice, and Remedy.
