Supply Chain
Our supply chains include: paper, starch, pallets, haulage, and energy. The majority of our purchases are from the UK and countries within the EEA. We do not trade with countries which are the subject of sanctions or embargoes imposed by either the United Nations or the UK government.

We have developed training for our staff on the issue of modern slavery within our supply chains and business. We are committed to addressing modern slavery and ensuring ethical compliance, and have developed policies which reflect the values we adhere to as a business. This are made available within our staff handbook, and includes a provision to address a safe mechanism for whistle blowing.
