          "We acknowledge that getting suppliers on board is not a task we can undertake on our own and we rely heavily on stakeholder collaboration. External stakeholders may hold better monitoring tools and intelligence to detect potential errant or non-compliant suppliers. In addition to our own assessments, we leverage on external parties to help us identify suppliers that we should further assess and engage with. For example, a non-governmental organisation (NGO) that works to protect the environment, sends us monthly reports of their deforestation detection. We look through these to see if any of the highlighted companies are in our supply chain which require us to undertake followup actions. "

Through constant dialogue with our suppliers, especially smallholders, we hope to build a relationship of mutual trust in order for them to feel confident in sharing information about the challenges they face in meeting new sustainability standards. A strong rapport with suppliers strengthens our ability to support them in their sustainability efforts without compromising on our policies. "

In 2019, we have not found any suppliers in breach of our policy requirements."
