Auditing and Inspections

Juice carries out thorough audits when using a new supplier every time. Every individual job is always inspected, no matter what the size. We do this to ensure our supplier’s compliance to both our own labour policy and to local and international law.

Juice carries out two types of audit:

Social Audits – This inspection ensures that a supplier adheres to internationally recognized SA 8000 or Sedex (SMETA) standards for social and ethical compliance. As members of Sedex (SMETA), our auditors independently assess workplace health and safety, child and forced labour, working hours and wages, discrimination, discipline, management systems, and dormitories if provided by the factory.

Factory Audit – This inspection ensures that a supplier adheres to the internationally recognized ISO 9000 Standards for Quality Management Systems. Our qualified auditors independently assess everything from production capacities and quality control systems to staff facilities and working conditions. We go on site personally to get the information we need to ensure high-quality and suppliers. It helps us confirm that our factory has the production capacity and quality to meet our production needs.

Employment:

We are steadfast in our dedication to ensuring a diverse and happy workplace. Juice employs people regardless of background, gender and sexuality. We take all staff complaints seriously and make all efforts to ensure their welfare and comfort within the business.

Community:

Juice understands that corporate and social responsibility entails giving back to the societal landscape that we inhabit. We actively support local community initiatives and programs, and are happy to lend merchandising assistance back to society where we can.
