As one of the largest foodservice packaging companies in North America, D&W Fine Pack LLC (DWFP) has always been committed to responsibly developing innovative packaging and material solutions that reflect our corporate culture of honesty, integrity, sustainability, and ethical and lawful business practices.
DWFP thoroughly supports the efforts of The California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010 (the “Act”) to eradicate the exploitive effects of human trafficking, slavery and forced labor within the global supply chain. To that end, we are continually focused on fully complying with all applicable employment and legal requirements, and work in cooperation with business partners who share our values and expectations in humanely treating all people at every level of our chain of operations with dignity and respect.
In accordance with the Act, as a retail seller and manufacturer doing business in California with over $100 million in worldwide gross receipts, DWFP hereby discloses, at a minimum, the following procedures designed to fulfill the objectives of this Act:

- Auditing: The Company does not currently conduct audits of suppliers to evaluate supplier compliance with company standards regarding human trafficking and slavery in its supply chain.

- Certification: The Company does not currently require its direct suppliers to certify that materials incorporated into its product comply with laws regarding slavery and human trafficking in the country or countries in which they are doing business. However, this requirement is being incorporated into our supplier agreements.
