INTRODUCTION FROM THE BOARD

We are committed to improving our practices to combat slavery and human trafficking.

 

ORGANISATION’S STRUCTURE

The principal activity of the Company is trading in dairy products. It is anticipated that annual turnover for the financial year ending 31 December 2016 will exceed £125,000,000.  Our ultimate parent is The Fayrefield Group Ltd which has its Head Office in the UK.  Fayrefield Foods Ltd. has over 150 employees and operates only from sites within the United Kingdom. The company is parent to several subsidiaries within the UK and European Union. These subsidiaries will each introduce a similar policy to Fayrefield Foods Ltd in respect of slavery and human trafficking

 

OUR BUSINESS

Our business trades in dairy products from its base at Englesea House in Crewe, Cheshire. It also stores, cuts and packs these products at Fayrefield House, in Crewe, Cheshire.

 

OUR SUPPLY CHAINS

Our supply chains include obtaining dairy and similar products from a number of parties primarily based in the UK and EU.

 

OUR POLICIES 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 and in so far as is possible to requiring our suppliers hold similar ethos.

 

DUE DILIGENCE PROCESSES FOR SLAVERY AND HUMAN TRAFFICKING

We have in place a policy to protect whistle blowers who highlight to us any risk of slavery or human trafficking within our business.

 

TRAINING

To ensure a high level of understanding of the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in our supply chains and our business, we aim to develop training for our staff.

 

FURTHER STEPS

Following a review of the effectiveness of the steps we have taken to ensure that there is no slavery or human trafficking in our business we intend to look to develop a specific policy for inclusion in our existing business policies and to share this with our supply chain and impress upon our supply chain the need to adopt a similar policy.

 

This statement is made pursuant to Section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes our slavery and human trafficking statement for the financial year ending 31 December 2016.
