California Transparency in Supply Chains Act

The California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010 (Calif. Civil Code § 1714.43) requires manufacturers and retailers to provide information on their efforts to address risks of slavery and human trafficking in their supply chains so that consumers can make more informed choices about the products they buy and the companies they choose to support.

Each day Domaine Ste. Michelle works with hundreds of businesses that help us produce and market our products. Across Domaine Ste. Michelle, we work to build relationships with reputable suppliers who share our commitment to conduct business in a responsible manner in compliance with applicable laws and respect the rights of workers to a safe working environment.

We outline our expectations for suppliers in our Supplier Code of Conduct.

Although our operations and sourcing are largely concentrated in the U.S., we understand that our actions may also affect those beyond our border. Respect for people is fundamental to the way we conduct business.

As a condition of our business relationship, supplier contracts typically require compliance with all applicable laws, including those addressing child and forced labor. Additionally:
