Alrosa Announces 2015-2017 Client ListFebruary 04, 15
(IDEX Online News) – Russian diamond miner Alrosa today (Wednesday) announced its list of long-term clients for the 2015-2017 contract period. Ten of its current 47 clients are new customers.
The company said that the 10 new companies became long-term clients after proving themselves as “reliable partners” in terms of tenders and spot sales.
The long-term agreements are the main principle of Alrosa’s sales policy and the company sells 70 percent of its rough diamonds under long-term contracts. The contracts guarantee monthly supply of goods in pre-agreed volumes and assortments, as well as an option to purchase an extra range of goods.
Alrosa said that this system guarantees stable supplies of rough diamonds and provides a hedge against diamond price volatility on the diamond market.
Long-term clients of Alrosa must adhere to the company’s Guidelines on Responsible Business Practices, which include transparency and information disclosure, anti-corruption policy, compliance with Kimberley Process requirements and respect for human rights.
Selected long-term clients are entitled to use the ALROSA ALLIANCE trade mark, which confirms both the signed contract for diamond supply and the client’s reputation as reliable and trusted partner.
