Response to New York Times Article on Indian Sugar Cane Workers and Human Rights Allegations


We condemn abuse in any form within our supply chain and take these reports very seriously. We are committed to respecting human rights wherever we do business and have prioritized addressing these issues in our global operations and supply chains. As such, we invest in a range of efforts from the local to global level to address human rights risks and impacts, with a particular focus on due diligence and stakeholder engagement.   

We are deeply troubled by the New York Times’ heart-rending reporting of forced hysterectomies in Maharashtra.  We are committed to looking into and understanding the issues reported by the New York Times.
