California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010
Vallarta Supermarkets conducts business in a lawful and ethical manner and we expect our vendors to conduct their business in the same manner. Vallarta Supermarkets has established this policy in an attempt to prevent slavery and human trafficking in the production or distribution of any merchandise procured through our supply chains.
As a condition of doing business with Vallarta Supermarkets vendors must certify that all products, or materials incorporated into products Vallarta Supermarkets is purchasing are in compliance with laws regarding slavery and human trafficking. Vendors must also ensure that any subcontractor used in the manufacturing or distribution of any product sold to Vallarta Supermarkets complies with the same standards.
We do not have direct control over the process by which our products are produced or manufactured, so we use contractual requirements instead of third party verifications to assure the integrity of our product supply chains.
If Vallarta Supermarkets determines that a vendor or its contractors have failed to comply with this policy, Vallarta Supermarkets will be entitled, among other actions, to return all products on hand for a full refund and to cancel all unfilled orders at no cost.
In order to mitigate the risks within Vallarta Supermarkets supply chains we instruct our employees, who have direct responsibility for supply chain management, about this policy, and we provide a copy of this policy to all of our suppliers.
