Suppliers and ethical impact

As we want to keep our ecological footprint as low as possible, we choose to only work with suppliers within Western Europe. In addition, all of our suppliers are subject to EU legislation, which implies no forced or slave labor, no child labor, no discrimination of any kind and a safe and hygienic workplace. In addition, staff do not work more than 48 hours per week on average, receive a sufficient living wage and have voluntary and paid overtime.
