CoC for Suppliers
Foodcase International (FC) has established a Code of Conduct for Suppliers, Vendors and Service Providers, which requires all its suppliers, vendors and service providers and their facilities to comply with all applicable laws, respect human rights, environmental conservation, the quality of products and services as well as meet the standards of this Code. This Code is based on values and practices that FC upholds and adheres to herself. FC also expects that her suppliers, vendors and service providers will hold their business associates to the same standards as considered in this Code.

Suppliers, vendors and service providers shall adhere to a strict no-tolerance policy with respect to any form of physical, sexual or psychological harassment or abuse.
