At New Generals, we want to be a responsible and developing partner and actively influence our suppliers and partners to take responsibility and focus on health, the environment and responsible working conditions.

All our partners share our social values and demands for working conditions such as reasonable pay, physical conditions such as ventilation, holidays, working hours, health insurance and other social conditions.
