Protecting Against Modern Slavery in Agricultural Supply Chains through SAN/Rainforest Alliance Certification

Rainforest Alliance Certification, which requires compliance with the Sustainable Agriculture Network (SAN) standards, has long held the protection of human rights as a central tenet and objective.

As such, the SAN and Rainforest Alliance welcome the UK Modern Slavery Act as a positive step toward mainstreaming rights-protection norms, good practices, and supply chain transparency, which our certification program has long promoted. Integral to the SAN/Rainforest Alliance certification system are policies that prohibit—and procedures that protect against forced labor, worst forms of child labor, and coercion in agricultural settings. Sourcing products from Rainforest Alliance CertifiedTM farms helps companies meet requirements of the 2015 UK Modern Slavery Act
