Abstract: In an increasing domestic and international market competition, businesses cannot ignore ethics due to the risk to their reputation and increasing internal and external pressures (Manuel G. Velasquez, 1992). This realizes the significance of the study. The study was conducted at MOHA Soft Drinks Industry, Teklehaimanot plant with the general purpose of examining the business ethics practices of the company. Since business ethics determines the success of the business organizations, ethics has to be included in their corporate values. Hence, businesses should consider at least some major ethical issues. In this study, four business ethical issues were explained and explored, Viz; product safety, employee health and safety, social responsibility (social concern) and environmental protection. Ethics as related to product safety was dealt by determining the controlling mechanism of product’s hazard to consumers by the factory. Employee health and safety program of the company was explored. Contributions of the company to local community development program were pointed out. Finally, the attitude of the company towards environmental protection and the mechanism they are using to reduce the pollution of the environment were highlighted. In the study, background of the organization was included. Concerning the above business ethical issues, related literatures were reviewed.
