End of questions. Back to Tropical Fruit question list.


Does the brand (company) have a published list of direct suppliers, that have collectively contributed to more than 90% of the purchase volume?

German Question: Hat der Markenhersteller eine Liste der Zulieferer für tropische Früchte veröffentlicht, die gemeinschaftlich mehr als 90% des Einkaufsvolumens beitragen?


One of the ultimate (and unusual) ways to boost transparency is to share the supplier list with other brands (as usual within most MSI’s) or even better, to put the supplier list online. See also Apparel & Footwear Question 4.
