Thai Food Processors’ Association Opposes Child Labour


Social Responsibility in Thai Food Industry

The Thai Food Processors’ Association (TFPA) has publicly come out in support of Andy Hall and the research he did, countering the Natural Fruit company that is seeking to have Andy imprisoned and fined up to $10 million. The statement reiterates the TPFAs commitment to oppose child labour, forced labour and human trafficking.

In a statement released on 29th March 2013 TFPA indicated its members welcome independent researches, including the recent report by Finnwatch, which may report on weaknesses in the social responsibility programs of the food industry in Thailand. This will assist TFPA and its members to coherently implement further action plans in order to comply with social compliance requirements of importing countries and to uphold greater social standards.
