On October 30th, 2018 Sharon Prince’s organization, Grace Farms Foundation, entered into a “Memorandum of Understanding (abbreviated MOU)” with the Georgia country and Unchain.
This “Memorandum of Understanding” creates standard and practices which will promote transparency in supply chain. This will aid in bringing an end to contemporary slavery–which is a major issue largely in countries outside the United States. The ultimate goal of this partnership is to help educate other countries, corporations, and investors about financial benefits of transparency in corporate supply chains.
As part of Grace Farms Foundation’s responsibilities, they will work together with the Georgia government and Unchain in developing a licensing procedure and also reviewing the existing legal, institutional, policy framework, and standards. This review will serve to strengthen processes which will look over both ethical and transparent supply chains in two international supply chains: food/agriculture and technology.

An international awareness campaign will be used to promote the end of contemporary slavery and will serve as a part of the MOU between Sharon Prince Grace Farms Foundation, Georgia, and Unchain. The campaign is aimed to launch at some point in the first quarter of 2019. The campaign will also help define a standard set for both ethical and transparent supply chains on a conceptual high-level and a detailed low-level.
The campaign is also set to bring together a technology advisory council. The technology advisory council will mainly evaluate technologies which can be applied to the standards methodologies. The council will perform other responsibilities on top of this.
When commenting on this story, Sharon Prince remarks, “We live in a world where there must be a universal commitment to take action against these destructive forces. That’s why it’s a privilege to enter into this MOU with Unchain and the country of Georgia, a nation that has set itself apart as a leader and has made a commitment to building a multi-pronged ethical business model, which will actually accelerate growth while also driving social change.”
