Oil supplier charter underwriting project

Oil supplier charter underwriting project

Each Costa d’Oro oil supplier must sign the 10 points of the “OIL SUPPLIER’S CHARTER,” where they adhere to the agreed upon good agricultural practices. Costa d’Oro conducts spot checks in the field, at the oil mill and in the storage warehouses to verify effective adherence.

Obiettivo
