The SIZA program was established as a pro-active response by the South African fruit industry to promote sound and on-going improvement of ethical labour practices on South African fruit farms and in pack houses. With the aim to encourage continuous improvement in practices over time in excess of the minimum legal requirements.

 

SIZA has endorsed the adoption of the Global Social Compliance Programme (GSCP) Reference tools as the platform for its own audit scheme.

 

The GSCP is supported by various retailers, including Tesco, Walmart, M&S, Ahold, Migros, COOP Switzerland, ICA, Delhaize, Carrefour and Pick ′n Pay.
