Stronger Together South Africa is a programme by Stronger Together in partnership with the Wine and Agricultural Ethical Trade Association (WIETA) and in close alliance with the Sustainability Initiative South Africa (SIZA). In this collaborative industry programme, we are working together with producers and other key stakeholders, and will facilitate dialogue between fruit and wine companies and with the markets they supply to, and support them with essential knowledge and pragmatic guidance, to reduce the risk of forced labour across the wine and fruit growing industries in South Africa.
The Wine and Agricultural Ethical Trade Association (WIETA) is a multi-stakeholder initiative bringing together stakeholders to actively participate in the development of a world class ethical trade programme for the South African wine industry.
SIZA enables South African Agriculture to be a global leader in sustainable, ethical trade and environmental stewardship. It is an Agri-Wide multisector stakeholder programme align to International and Local Market standards to manage risks and support continuous improvement of labour conditions on farms.
