Child labour is all too common in parts of the world where poverty and a lack of opportunity remain systemic problems. Akran has taken a firm stand against child labour. We have a zero-tolerance policy when it comes to child labour anywhere in our supply chain.

Akran deals exclusively with manufacturers that meet the applicable minimum legal age requirement by law (15 years of age minimum). Factories are required to maintain official documentation verifying each worker's date of birth. Suppliers must also comply with all other applicable child labour laws, including those related to hiring, wages, hours worked, overtime and working conditions or they are excluded from our supply chain.
