Our suppliers are mostly audited by Sedex (or equivalent) and those who have not been audited have been personally visited by one or more of the company Directors to ascertain the standard of employment and that in principle, the supplier is committed to the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and satisfies us that every opportunity has been given to ensure the safety and welfare of all the employees of those companies.
