Dewhirst strives to achieve exceptional standards in Social, Ethical and Health & Safety Compliance at every stage of the production process and throughout the supply chain. We have always endeavoured to set the benchmark for employment, community and environmental initiatives that are now being widely accepted by the industry as standard practice.
We work through wholly owned and third party factories to ensure that Compliance standards are clearly understood and sustained throughout our global network. Annual audits, supporting customers initiatives, and regular on-site visits with a Compliance focus, ensure the reputation of your brand.
Protecting the world in which we work
We ensure strict compliance to Equal opportunities, and that the highest possible Health & Safety standards are maintained in the factories. We also work to support local employment and the community, whenever possible, developing local family-run businesses.
