We have today launched new guidance entitled ‘Transparency in the UK Food Supply Chain – Guidance on ensuring ethical labour standards’. The document, which is free to download from our website lays out pragmatic and straightforward good practice for UK-based growers and producers.
Specifically, businesses are encouraged to incorporate a three-step approach into their management practices. Step one is to map and risk assess the supply chain. Step two is to set and agree standards with key suppliers for the supply and management of labour and services. Step three involves working in partnership to ensure due diligence with those agreed standards.
Places on the ‘Tackling Hidden Worker Exploitation’ workshops to further help businesses understand their responsibilities and the best practice associated with combating modern day slavery may be booked via our workshop/events page.
