Which producers does Alko audit?
The supply chain of a beverage product is often long and complicated. The continuous changes in assortment increases the challenge of verifying responsible purchasing. Alko aims at verifying the production of large volume products originating from s.c. risk countries in our fixed assortment. We commission an audit especially if a producer is not participating in programs for ethical trade or production (e.g. ethically certified products), they do not have a valid social audit commissioned by another client, or Alko’s supplier or our own representative has not visited the production facility and farms thus seeing the quality of the operations.
