November 27, 2020 EcoVadis ‏‏‎

Ferrero supports Ilo (International Labor Organization) in the implementation of a project in Turkey, lasting 40 months, to contribute to the elimination of the worst forms of child labor in seasonal agriculture of hazelnut harvesting. As we celebrate World Children's Day and the 30th anniversary of the Convention on the Rights of the Child today, Ilo and Ferrero confirm their commitment to eliminate child labor. Thanks to Ferrero's contribution of over 4 million dollars, the Organization will carry out a multi-year project active in 3 Turkish provinces (Trabzon, Zonguldak and Şanlıurfa), aimed at supporting the exit of children who currently work in the sector and to prevent others from enter it.
