We are raising awareness amongst all our staff of the risks of modern slavery in our business and supply chains as part of our induction process for new joiners and reminders to existing staff.
The management team has overall responsibility for ensuring that this policy complies with our legal and ethical obligations and will review it annually. The Production Manager is responsible for implementing and monitoring the effectiveness of this policy.
We encourage all staff working for and with us (including employees, contractors, agency workers) to report any concerns about modern slavery in any part of our business or in our supply chains.
