Supply Chain Compliance
California Transparency in Supply Chains Act
Lancaster Colony Corporation (and its subsidiaries, collectively “Lancaster Colony”) upholds an abiding commitment to uncompromising integrity. We are opposed to slavery and human trafficking and want our supply chain to be free of such activity. As a result, we expect our suppliers to conduct business in a lawful and ethical manner.
Lancaster Colony supply agreements require our suppliers to comply with all applicable laws within the supplier’s place(s) of operation, including those laws regarding slavery and human trafficking. While we do not verify our product supply chains to evaluate and address the risk of human trafficking and slavery, we are very careful to select reputable suppliers. Our supplier audits do not include trafficking standards, and suppliers are not asked to certify that the materials they use comply with slavery and human trafficking laws.
Our Code of Business Ethics requires all of our employees to report any illegal or unethical behavior involving the Company or its employees. This reporting can be done by contacting Corporate Counsel or calling our Compliance Help Line anonymously. Any employees who discover contractors or employees supporting human trafficking or slavery in any way must report that knowledge under our Code of Business Ethics.
Lancaster Colony management and employees who have direct responsibility for supply chain management are required to take ethics coursework but are not required to take specific training on human trafficking and slavery with respect to mitigating risks with the product supply chain.
