WH Group Ltd. (WH Group), the world’s largest pork processor, ranks 40th out of 43 companies and discloses significantly less information on its forced labor policies and practices than its peers.

The company has an opportunity to improve its performance and disclosure on the themes of Commitment & Governance, Traceability & Risk Assessment, and Worker Voice.
