Tat Gıda pays maximum attention to the issue of human rights and employee rights, ensures that its approaches and practices are monitored by internal and external audit organizations on this issue, and constantly checks its performance in this area with sustainability reports. Since the sustainability of the business depends on qualified and experienced employees who will carry the Company into the future, it is one of our most important responsibilities to provide our employees with a development-oriented working environment in which they will feel happy and productive.
While fulfilling these responsibilities, our primary approach is to be focused on respect for basic human rights and continuous improvement. Ethical Codes of Conduct and Application Principles based on the basic principles determined by Vehbi Koç, the founder of the Koç Group, are of great importance in ensuring the continuity of this system. Our code of ethical attitude has been shared with all employees within the framework of the same accuracy and compliance with the personnel regulations.
The functioning and healthy implementation of the ethical rules are carried out within the Company through the Ethics Committee, which consists of the General Manager, the Assistant General Manager related to the issue, the Human Resources Director, the Legal Counsel and the Industrial Relations Manager.

Our company complies with the Declaration of Equality in Business, the most comprehensive initiative signed by the Koç Group, to which it is affiliated, in 2013, with the aim of reducing gender inequality, and continues to develop new applications in order to realize the commitments contained in the declaration.
