De Monchy Natural Products is aware of their position in the supply chain and the possible risks related to working with developing countries and regions. We make certain that none of our partners uses child labor in any of the production stages. We avoid doing business with partners who do not follow the local labor legislation, or act in contradiction to ILO guidelines.
De Monchy is actively involved in various care programs, and work ethics are a major component of our supplier assessments. We have long standing business relationships with our partners and monitor and audit all of them to ensure international norms and all laws are being respected. We are fully transparent in the way we work, and traceability is confirmed across products and markets.
Our company provides equal opportunities to all people, regardless of age, gender, religion or ethnicity. We stimulate teams with a diversified composition and firmly believe such teams are the key to better performance. De Monchy employs people from nearly 20 different countries.
We respect the delicate balance between people, planet and profit. The De Monchy Natural Products staff is passionate about their business but conducts business with integrity and respect. It is a given fact that our company will comply with all international laws and food safety regulations. We do not allow corruption within our supply-chains. We hold our partners to the same standards.
The green campaign of 2020 has started and we proudly announce that we are using a digital system developed by Metajua and Ecocert to register the farmers, their production, working conditions, certifications and payments. This enables us to deliver child labor free vanilla that is produced in a transparent, traceable and economically sustainable way. The elimination of child labor is mentioned in our code of conduct and signed by all our farmers (members of the Macky Association) and partners accordingly.
On July 11th 2020, our employees participated in a training that was organized and conducted by our sustainability manager in cooperation with Save the Children.
COVID-19 has spread worldwide, including in Madagascar where the lockdown has severely impacted the poorest of the population. They are barely surviving, having one single objective: find ways to feed their family day after day. As a friend of Madagascar for a very long time, our Managing Director, Stéphane Lévêque, wanted to give something back to the Malagasy people in this difficult time. Together with his good friend, Jean Marc, a restaurant owner in Antananarivo, they joined hands to prepare and distribute 600 meals per day locally, bringing them directly to the people each day for 3 weeks. We were touched by the support of the First Lady of Madagascar, Ms. Mialy Rajoelina, who joined the initiative from the very first day.
We’d like to offer a big thank you to all our friends in Madagascar who did an impressive job preparing the meals every day, the associations Envol Madagascar and Sakafo pour tous for their outstanding help, as well as to everyone who contributed in order to make this possible.
