As a UK based service company, we are fortunate that we do not have to deal with issues of ethical and fair trade or modern slavery most of the time. However, we are aware that it is essential to keep our eyes open for instances where our business may encounter these issues, such as work with overseas partners, suppliers who may have staff and supply chains overseas, and that products we purchased have been manufactured and traded responsibly.
We ensure that:
- We always comply with the Base Code of the Ethical Trading Initiative (ETI)
- We routinely check the policies of our suppliers to ensure that that comply with the ETI Base Code
- Wholegrain and our Suppliers are compliant with the Modern Slavery Act 2015
