This statement sets out When Fresh Limited’s (WhenFresh) actions to understand all potential modern slavery risks related to its business and to put in place steps that are aimed at ensuring that there is no slavery or human trafficking in its own business and its supply chains.
WhenFresh recognises that it has a responsibility to take a robust approach to slavery and human trafficking.
WhenFresh is absolutely committed to preventing slavery and human trafficking in its corporate activities, and to ensuring that its supply chains are free from slavery and human trafficking.
Company structure and supply chains
WhenFresh does not have a supply chain that is reliant on factories or other entities that would normally be associated with slavery or forced labour.
WhenFresh operates the following policies that describe its approach to the identification of modern slavery risks and steps to be taken to prevent slavery and human trafficking in its operations:
> Whistleblowing policy.
WhenFresh encourages all its workers, customers and other business partners to report any concerns related to the direct activities, or the supply chains of, the company. This includes any circumstances that may give rise to an enhanced risk of slavery or human trafficking. WhenFresh’s whistleblowing procedure is designed to make it easy for workers to make disclosures, without fear of retaliation. Employees, customers or others who have concerns can raise concerns with the HR Manager or Compliance Officer.
> Ethics and Code of Business Conduct Policy.
WhenFresh’s code makes clear to employees the actions and behaviour expected of them when representing the company. WhenFresh strives to maintain the highest standards of employee conduct and ethical behaviour when operating abroad and managing its supply chain.
> Supplier Policy.
WhenFresh is committed to ensuring that its suppliers adhere to the highest standards of ethics. As a general rule, contractors and suppliers used by WhenFresh are not likely to be a susceptible to this risk. However, we are mindful that others may not always uphold standards to the same level as WhenFresh.
Consequently, employees responsible for managing suppliers and others are, themselves, responsible for ensuring that our values and ideals are upheld. This continues to be a work in progress, and we are strengthening our controls as new contracts are agreed. Any serious violations by suppliers will lead to the termination of the business relationship.
> Recruitment policy.
WhenFresh uses only specified, reputable employment agencies to source labour and always verifies the practices of any new agency it is using before accepting workers from that agency, this includes carrying out right to work checks. WhenFresh does not employ individuals that would be considered to be “child workers”. Young and inexperienced workers may be employed or given work experience, but they are subject to the rights and protections that we afford all workers.
> Due diligence
WhenFresh undertakes due diligence when considering taking on new suppliers and regularly reviews its existing suppliers. WhenFresh will check each supplier has considered their own company and supply chain for modern slavery and human trafficking.
WhenFresh will put in place training for 2020/2021 to require all staff within WhenFresh to complete awareness training on modern slavery.
