Ben & Jerry's maker Unilever to insist suppliers pay 'living wage'

Unilever has said that by 2030 it will refuse to do business with any firm that does not pay at least a living wage or income to its staff. "We will therefore ensure that everyone who directly provides goods and services to Unilever earns at least a living wage or income, by 2030.". Unilever already audits its suppliers over climate change commitments, and will use these existing arrangements to make sure workers are being paid a living wage. Laura Gardiner, director of the Living Wage Foundation, said commitments such as Unilever's show how some employers "Are leading the way in spreading the living wage through both their business networks, and across their global operations". Unilever joins food services giants Sodexo and Compass Group on the Living Wage Foundation's list of recognised service providers which have made similar supply chain commitments.
