SPBCo COMPLIANT TO WALMART ETHICAL SOURCING STANDARDS AUDIT

Posted on 1 July 2014 | 0 Comments

On February 11, 2014, SPBCo was audited by an independent 3rd party, designated by Walmart, to assess compliance to the very exacting ethical sourcing standards developed by the world’s leading retailer.  Encompassing everything from fire safety, to employee documentation and practices, to environmental and facilities procedures – this rigorous social compliance audit of our Sheboygan, WI facility was requested by one of our Food industry customers, but will be applicable to all of our customers with a keen interest in food defense, hygienic product, and comprehensive operational standards.  Out of 50+ possible findings, SPBCo received only 3 minor ones – all of which have by now been addressed with corrective actions in place.  SPBCo is proud of our continued ability to be a highly compliant provider of packaging solutions for the demanding customers we serve, many of whom sell to Walmart internationally.
