Ethical trading – screening suppliers
Our policy is to purchase goods which are produced in conditions that do not involve the abuse or exploitation of anyone.
We expect our suppliers, both in their own companies and those of their suppliers, to commit to work towards full compliance with labour standards based upon those set by the Ethical Trade Initiative (ETI) and which reflect the key elements of the International Labour Organisation (ILO) conventions. When procuring from outside the EU, we will only use suppliers whose facilities are of the equivalent EU approved standard and would never knowingly accept food products from suppliers who exploit the people or natural resources of their environment.
Ethical trading forms part of our supplier selection process and our key partners are measured on this annually.
