Supply Chain

Responsible Supply Chain

Tendam works under the premise of promoting best practices in the supply chain, based on a relationship of mutual trust with suppliers, long-term collaboration, permanent dialogue and joint planning.

Within its global supply chain, it has established a process of researching and approving suppliers according to quality standards, product, production capacity and social aspects to ensure the quality of the products and its suppliers’ working and social conditions.

Suppliers management and production from the different geographical areas are controlled from its sourcing offices in Hong Kong, India, Bangladesh and Madrid. Its principal function is to coordinate with suppliers and continually supervise factories with audits for quality and compliance with the Code of Conduct.

AMFORI

Tendam has been a member of AMFORI since 2017, with the objective of strengthening the capability of assessing and monitoring suppliers throughout the value chain by sharing knowledge and experience with all the members
of the initiative.

AMFORI is a global association for open and sustainable trade whose main mission is to improve society and encourage the sustainable use of resources. Through the initiatives BSCI (Business Social Compliance Initiative) and BEPI (Business Environmental Performance Initiative), they provide an international framework to support actions aimed at reducing risks associated with the supply chain.

Evaluation and validation

In order to place an order, any supplier that works for the first time for any of the Tendam brands’ must undergo an evaluation by the company’s technicians on their technical capacity: processes, machinery, production capacity, etc.

The evaluations are carried out at each of the factories expected to take part in manufacturing the orders for the company. If it does not pass the technical audit, it will fail and the evaluation process will be over, although the factory will be provided a period of time to implement the necessary actions to comply with the requirements.

In addition to the technical evaluation, an evaluation of the working and social conditions is carried out. In order to meet the requirements that have been established, the factory can present a certification in accordance with international schemes that will be validated and verified by the company’s technicians or subjected to an audit by accredited independent entities.
