other than the evaluation of the proposed transaction.

California Transparency Survey - S. B. 657 CA Transparency in Supply Chains Act
The California Transparency in Supply Chains Act requires that companies doing business in the state disclose their efforts to prevent slavery and human trafficking within their supply chains. This law applies to companies doing business in California, whether they are headquartered in that state or not. In order to comply with that law, Safeway has developed a procedure that includes the attached survey. As a Safeway vendor, you will be required to complete this survey even if you are not California based or do not meet the $100 Million sales threshold.
Safeways unsaleables policy is derived from the 1990 GMA/FMI
document, "Joint Industry Report on Product Reclamation Centers."
We endorse the voluntary guidelines contained in the report and
have incorporated them as the foundation of our own policy.
