How we work with our suppliers
Since Frugi was born in 2004 we have always believed passionately about caring for people and the planet. We want to be completely ethical, honest and transparent in everything we do. Ensuring our suppliers are operating at a high ethical standard and creating the right environment for the people who work for Frugi is very important to us.
We take great pride in the relationships we develop with the companies and people who supply our goods and services and we aim to build long standing partnerships with our suppliers by working fairly and honestly.
We not only expect our suppliers to obey the law but we also want them to respect the wellbeing of their employees, communities and the environment in which they work.
We regularly visit our suppliers to make sure that everything is ship shape and they are working to the Frugi Code of Conduct…
FRUGI’S CODE OF CONDUCT (How we make sure everyone who works with us has a little spring in their step!)
No child labour
No underage children are employed or recruited by us, we make clothes for children not by children
Employment is freely chosen
We do not agree with forced labour and employees are free to leave their employer at any point (with reasonable notice of course)
There’s absolutely no discrimination
Our suppliers do not hire, compensate, promote or terminate employment based on race, caste, nationality, religion, age, disability, gender, marital status, sexual orientation or political membership.
Our suppliers look after their employees
• Wages and benefits paid for a standard working week must meet industry benchmark standards or national legal requirements (whichever is higher)
• We insist that working hours comply with local and national laws and no workers work more than 48 hours per week
• Overtime is voluntary and paid at a premium rate and will not exceed 12 hours per week.
• All employees are treated with respect and a safe, clean, hygienic environment is provided.
