What does this mean for JTI?
Our business partners include our customers, suppliers, growers, leaf merchants, distributors and any other parties with whom we have a commercial relationship.
Unethical conduct by any of our business partners can impact our reputation. We strive to work with partners committed to our high ethical standards.
All suppliers are required to meet JTI’s Supplier Standards and we certify key suppliers against these standards.
The JTI Agricultural Labor Practices (‘ALP’) program focuses on improving labor practices within our grower and leaf merchant operations, covering topics such as rights of workers, health and safety and child labor.
We conduct due diligence to ensure that all business partners purchasing or handling our tobacco products maintain a reputation for honesty and integrity.
