There is an awareness of the risks and senior management have a clear directive to report any concerns in relation to Modern Slavery and to act upon them without delay. Some of our products are sourced overseas’ particularly from Turkey and Asia, we make every effort to develop, maintain and uphold sustainable relationships with all our manufacturers and suppliers as this provides us with a transparency throughout every step of the manufacturing process.
It also encourages a partnership based on honesty and openness.
We have always assessed any new manufacturer before any purchasing goes ahead
Our integrity in support of the removal of modern slavery will not be compromised and any breach in the supply chain will face appropriate action which would include the termination of purchasing agreements.
