This Act noted that slavery and human trafficking remain a hidden blight on our global society. We all are responsible for being alert to the risks, however small, in our business and the wider supply chain. This Act requires businesses of a certain size to produce an annual statement setting out the steps they have taken to ensure there is no modern slavery in their own business and their supply chains. The measure is designed to create a level playing field between those businesses, which act responsibly and those that need to change their policies and practices.

OUR POLICIES/ACTIONS ON SLAVERY AND HUMAN TRAFFICKING
We are committed to ensuring that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in any part of our business. Our compliance with this Act reflects our commitment to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships and to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure this in our own business and spreading the message to our supply chain.
Delivering on this commitment has been allocated as a specific responsibility of Judith O’Leary, founder and managing director.
Our business conforms to all the relevant UK employment legislation and our employment policies reflect that.
SUPPLIER ADHERENCE TO OUR VALUES
We have zero tolerance for slavery and human trafficking. We expect all those in our supply chain to comply with our values. No suggestions have been received of poor practice by our supplier base around this issue.
GOVERNANCE & REVIEW
This statement detailing our approach to the Modern Slavery Act is reviewed on an annual basis to ensure compliance.
