The goal of every business house is to earn profits. Deepa Matches is no different. Yet there is a big difference – while keeping an eye on our balance sheet we are also sensitive towards society.
We source our supplies only from such match manufacturing industries that strictly employ adults. Encouraging child labour even indirectly is a strict NO at Deepa Matches. We motivate other manufacturing units to engage only adults and our assurance that such a step will translate into bulk and regular orders from us does do the trick.
In Sivakasi, where children grow up working in matchstick industries, eat and sleep with them, matchsticks seem like toys to them. We conduct safety awareness campaigns in schools and educate children about the hazards of matchsticks and how to deal with fires and burns.
We also educate match industries about the necessity of following environment friendly manufacturing policies.
