Supply Chain Transparency

Policy Against Human Trafficking and Slavery

Icicle Seafoods, Inc. ("Icicle") is committed to providing a work environment and supply chain that is free from human trafficking and slavery. Icicle takes responsibility for promoting ethical and lawful labor and employment practices and expects the same from all participants in its supply chain. Icicle strives not just to meet the minimum requirement of complying with laws, regulations, and basic human rights, but to ensure that its employees have a safe, fair, equitable, and rewarding work environment.


Icicle participates in a heavily regulated industry in which state and federal authorities closely monitor and enforce laws and regulations including licensing and inspecting fishing vessels and crews. This licensing and inspection process ensures that vessels and their crews adhere to applicable health, safety, and labor practices. Furthermore, Icicle utilizes only reputable third party vendors that adhere to all applicable labor and employment laws and regulations. Third party vendors perform ethical audits addressing the health, safety, and working conditions of Icicle employees at certain Icicle facilities.
