Free specialised training workshops available for all South African wine producers to help them understand the risks of irregular labour practices to their businesses and supply chains.

Stronger Together, the Wine and Agricultural Ethical Trade Association (WIETA) and the Sustainability Initiative of South Africa (SIZA) have partnered on this industry programme to inform and equip agri-businesses to tackle hidden forced labour and labour exploitation.

Over 95% of the 289 businesses who have already attended said the workshop helped them understand the risks and impacts of forced labour on their business.

Workshop dates available to book now:
20 November 2018 – Ganbaai, Western Cape
23 November 2018 – Somerset West, Western Cape
28 November 2018 – Swellendam, Western Cape

Delivered by local experts in Afrikaans and English the training provides information on clear steps that businesses can take to help them with international market access where transparency in supply chain legislation increasingly requires companies to demonstrate actions they are taking to mitigate the risk of forced labour. It will also help businesses to meet WIETA and SIZA audit control points. All attendees receive a comprehensive toolkit including templates and checklists to help them implement what they have learnt.

Alko, BerryWorld, Co-op, Global Fruit Point, Greenyard Fresh, Marks and Spencer, Morrisons, Sainsbury’s; Systembolaget, Tesco, Vinmonopolet and Waitrose are the international business partners of Stronger Together South Africa.
