Supplier Code of Ethics
Providing or receiving gifts, personal favors or any other benefit which might influence or raise doubts as to the
impartiality of the recipient and damage the reputation of MD Packaging for fair dealing are prohibited.
1. Conflicts of Interest
MD Packaging Inc. will conduct business in a professional, honest, ethical and transparent manner. Employees should not

non-business related travel or accommodations, personal favors or any other benefit which might influence or raise
doubts as to the impartiality of the recipient and damage the reputation of MD Packaging for fair dealing are prohibited.
Certain business courtesies such as payment of a reasonable amount for a lunch or dinner in connection with a business
meeting normally would not be a gift within the context of this policy. Advertising novelties would not be inappropriate to
give or receive, provided the item is of insignificant value and is widely distributed to others under essentially the same
business relationship with the customer.

in all circumstances.
