California Transparency in Supply Chain Act Information
Sutter Home Winery, Inc. is a leading wine and spirits company in the United States and around the world. The California Transparency in Supply Chains Act (SB 657) requires many companies (including ours) manufacturing and selling products in California to disclose their efforts (if any) to eliminate slavery and human trafficking in their supply chains. Sutter Home’s statement on this issue follows:
Sutter Home is committed to conducting its business in a lawful and ethical manner and expects its suppliers to do the same. The vast majority of our suppliers are located in the United States, principally in California. California and other states in the United States have laws making forced labor and human trafficking a serious crime. Responsible employees working on supply chain and quality assurance for our company try to ensure we work only with reputable suppliers. As far as we are aware, no supplier to our company has ever been accused of engaging in slavery or human trafficking. In addition, most of our contract with our major suppliers require that the supplier conduct its business in accordance with the all applicable laws, which would include laws against forced label and human trafficking. Sutter Home will seek to terminate its contract with any supplier found to be in violation of such laws.
