Several wines from South Africa which are extremely popular with Swedish consumers are produced under unethical conditions.

In an attempt to improve working conditions at the wineries, Sweden adopted an ethical code for wine imports which came into effect January 1, 2012. However, progress in this area has been slow, according to the newspaper, Dagens Nyheter.

When the Swedish state alcohol monopoly Systembolaget did a follow-up at nine South African wine producers, all of them were found to be in violation of the code. Swedish authorities have also received a letter from winery workers, warning of anti-union activity and other infringements of worker rights.
