Mexico City, October 10, 2022.- Grupo Herdez, the processed food company with the longest tradition in the country, joined the Women’s Empowerment Principles (WEPS) established by the United Nations.
These principles are a guide, intended to guide companies on gender equality and women’s empowerment in their workplace, industry and society in general. The WEPS are developed based on international human and labor rights standards.
By joining the Women’s Empowerment Principles community, each company’s leader commits to this agenda, to foster business practices that empower women. Part of these actions is offering living wages, gender-sensitive supply chain practices, as well as zero tolerance against sexual harassment in the workplace.
“With our incorporation into the Women’s Empowerment Principles we reaffirm our commitment to women, with the aim of establishing the congruence that has always characterized us as a company and providing the best opportunities for those who collaborate with us,” said Héctor Hernández-Pons Torres, CEO of Grupo Herdez.
