Food Network for Ethical Trade
Mission: We are a collaborative initiative aiming to use the collective leverage of suppliers and retailers to bring about positive change in working conditions in global food, beverage and horticulture supply chains by providing guidance, resources, training and opportunities for collaboration.
We're working to ensure ethical trade in global food supply chains.
The Food Network for Ethical Trade (FNET) was established in 2016 by a number of major UK food companies. We aim to support members to identify, manage and respond to global food supply chain ethical trade risks, to improve the food industry’s understanding of ethical trade, to identify and facilitate collaboration opportunities, to promote trust and to build a forum for sharing issues and best practice.
We currently have 55 members – food, beverage and horticulture suppliers, brands and retailers who are working to develop their collective capacity to make change in their supply chains.
FNET offers members:
• Collaboration – a safe non-competitive space to discuss challenging human rights issues
• Tools – access to tools to support the implementation of an ethical trade strategy or human rights due diligence approach including the FNET Risk Assessment Tool
• Insights and horizon scanning – credible and timely information on emerging human rights risks
• Influence – the ability to work on human rights issues with governments, NGOs and other industry bodies.
