Certification for fair trade and responsible supply chains
Impact, special achievements & commitmentsThe management of Bo Dam Farm and Dedam Farming have set themselves the objective of treating their employees and staff in a responsible and fair manner. They have identified the lack of skills and training and the fragile social structure of the community as the most prominent obstacles in furthering and improving the living and social wellbeing of their staff and the community at large.
The ethos of the company includes paying more than minimum wages and striving to pay a living wage. An investigation will be launched to determine the living wage specific to their worker’s environment and needs. Safe working environment and practises are part of their vision to protect their employees as well as the natural environment.
Regular training in various skills are planned and will be based on employment related skills development as well as life/social skills development. An independent audit is planned in approximately 3 years to evaluate the progress and assist in identifying shortfalls.
