Slavery and Forced Labour in the Seafood Production
Advocating for Slavery Free Seafood
Reports that have identified slavery and forced labour in the Seafood production and processing in Thailand and SE Asia are alarming. Australian law makes it illegal for any Australian company to engage in any financial transaction involving a slave, regardless of where it occurs in the world.
The work of Coles, Woolworths and Aldi in checking their supply chains back to factory processing is commendable.
You are invited to join us in urging the government to work with companies and civil society groups to take all reasonable steps to ensure the goods have their complete supply chain free of slavery and human trafficking. Call on the government to introduce legislation requiring businesses to publicly disclose the actions they are taking to insure their goods are free from slavery, human trafficking and forced labour.
