When Nestle Company admitted that slave labour was used in its seafood supply from Thailand, it set an example for other companies. These disclosures are necessary to urge Thailand to fix its supply chain…

International businesses rarely acknowledge such abuses. A non-profit that fights labor abuses, Verite, conducted the research and applauded Nestle’s admission.
