Our Impact

Supplier Onboarding

We ensure compliance is met at both ends

Every supplier who wishes to be on boarded has to go through a robust set of checks to ensure that they are in compliance with National Foods’ business practices and code of conduct. Every supplier is selected after our teams have conducted an analysis which involves analyzing their own code of doing business, their reputation, their ability to deliver on said times, their previous track record, and whether they will add value to National Foods.

In addition to analyzing a supplier’s potential to add value to our business, we strongly believe in ethical working practices and thus ensure they are not involved in forced or child labour.
