All producers need to ensure sustainable production and decent working conditions. We closely monitor status and progress through continuous dialogue, regular visits, and audits.
Implementing Amfori BSCI
helps ensure decent working
conditions on the vineyards.

AUDIT & CONTROL
Decent working conditions
We impose strict demands on our producers and farmers to ensure sustainable production. All workers shall have the right to reasonable working hours and appropriate pay. Discrimination is not accepted, and the health and safety of workers must be respected. All forms of child and forced labour are prohibited. We regularly carry out own site visits and engage audits by independent third parties.
Amfori BSCI is an international framework securing sustainable production and decent working conditions. The framework is based on the UN Declaration of Human Rights and the ILO conventions and implementation is reviewed by independent third parties. At Viva Wine Group we put special attention to farming and production in Argentina, Chile, Italy and South Africa.
Acting on shortcomings
We favour transparency and act on all indications of irregularities in the supply chain. We encourage employees, suppliers, agents, customers, and other business partners to speak up on possible abuse. In cases where it is preferable to remain anonymous, we offer an external reporting tool in collaboration with Lantero whistleblower system.
Winery workers and vineyard farmers must have fair pay and appropriate employment contracts.
FREEDOM OF ASSOCIATION
Everyone should be entitled to entitled to self-organization and negotiate their terms collectively.
LEGAL WORKING HOURS
Working hours must comply with legislation and international agreements. There must be opportunities for regular breaks.
