Ethical Charter


Any company or industry organization in the floral or produce industry can endorse the Charter.

IFPA seeks wide participation from every segment of the fresh produce and floral supply chain – including growers, shippers, fresh-cut processors, wholesalers, distributors, retailers, foodservice operators, industry suppliers and allied associations.

Endorsing the Charter publicly demonstrates a commitment to workplace safety, respect for worker dignity, compliance with all applicable legal requirements and a commitment to building coordinated action across the industry on responsible labor practices.

To become an endorser, a member of the leadership team commits in writing to:

  1. Encourage use of the principles contained in the Charter to promote responsible labor practices.
  2. Use the Charter to inform supply chain management standards and practices.
  3. Promote industry-wide awareness and understanding of the importance of supporting responsible labor practices throughout the supply chain.
  4. Harmonize supply chain monitoring mechanisms through recognition and acceptance of audits using the principles contained in the Charter, to help minimize the number of audits that farms and suppliers must undergo to demonstrate compliance.
  5. Conduct ongoing dialogue with relevant stakeholders to support compliance with the standards throughout the industry.

A company should submit its commitment to these principles on company letterhead and email the letter to Tamara Muruetagoiena at
