Wegmans expects its suppliers to comply, at a minimum, with all applicable labor, employment, health, safety, and environmental laws and regulations of the country where the products are produced. In the absence of applicable laws or regulations, or in addition to them, suppliers are expected to meet the requirements set forth in this Vendor Guide. Wegmans does not tolerate modern day slavery—such as forced or compulsory labor or the trafficking of persons. Suppliers are required to commit to a work environment where employment is freely chosen and not performed under threat, deception, coercion, force or menace of penalty. Wegmans will audit or investigate any potential concerns regarding slavery or human trafficking, whether by its direct supplier, transportation companies, or elsewhere in the supply chain.
