Ameropa condemns all forms of human rights abuse and we do not endorse any form of extremism. We firmly believe that all living beings must be treated with respect and dignity, in the same way oneself would want to be treated. Ameropa undertakes all reasonable efforts to promote the Universal Declaration of Human Rights among its business partners.

- Child & Forced Labor
We strongly condemn any child or forced labor. Ameropa complies with local regulation pertaining to minimum working age, resting periods or overtime regulations.
In our supply chain, we identified a potential area of infringement at the level of small-holder farming, where it is common and cultural practice for family members, including minors, to assist in the harvest process. We do not consider this a reportable offense, unless we encounter obvious abuse.
- Freedom of Association
We uphold the right of free association and collective representation. We are working openly together with unions to ensure mutually beneficial outcomes to labor disputes.
Mutual respect is one of Ameropa’s core values. Ameropa will give equal employment opportunity to all persons who share Ameropa’s commitment to excellence and will not tolerate any form of discrimination, be it based on age, gender, race, religion, sexual orientation, national or ethnic origin or any other reason. The Company will not tolerate harassment in the workplace. Unlawful harassment includes behavior toward another person based on that person’s race, color, age, gender, religion, national or ethnic origin, sexual orientation or other characteristic, which is unwelcome and personally offensive to its recipient and either creates an intimidating, offensive or hostile work environment, or unreasonably interferes with the person’s work performance.
Any act of discrimination or harassment when dealing with employees, customers or suppliers is contrary to Ameropa’s policies and values. Such acts will not be tolerated and will be subject to severe disciplinary action, including possible termination of employment.
