As a business, we are dedicated to inspiring the world to love great coffee. However, we know that we only have the chance to achieve this ambition because of the people who work in our organisation, the people who create our products, and of course the people who buy them. People form the core of our business and we’re committed to making sure that human rights are protected across our own business as well as our supply chains.
We don’t tolerate any form of slavery, forced labour or human trafficking – within our own business, across the operations of our franchisees and business partners, suppliers and wider supply chain.
All Costa Coffee procurement is subject to compliance with our Costa Coffee Supplier Guiding Principles which set out our minimum standards and the basic principles of co- operation that we require of all suppliers and business partners. These requirements are based on core international labour organisation conventions, the ETI base code and the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights.
