Compliance

Building trust with our consumers, suppliers and employees is a vital part of growing our business in a sustainable and transparent way.  You can read more about how we conduct ourselves and our expectations of others to act in the right way here:

Equality, diversity and respect for human rights

Building trust means challenging ours and others’ perceptions of acceptable behaviour and always acting with respect for others. Our Modern Slavery Act statement sets out the steps we have taken and will continue to take to ensure that modern slavery and human trafficking are not taking place within our business or supply chains.  Our equality statement can be found here
