At Ted’s Veg, we are committed to ethical practices, transparency, and the eradication of modern slavery in all its forms. We recognize our responsibility to ensure that our operations, as well as those of our supply chain partners, uphold the highest standards of human rights and dignity.
Our approach to combating modern slavery is founded on the following principles:
- Supply Chain Vigilance: We diligently assess and monitor our supply chain to identify and mitigate any risks associated with modern slavery. This includes conducting regular audits and collaborating with suppliers who share our commitment to ethical practices.
- Collaboration and Education: We actively engage with our suppliers, partners, and employees to raise awareness about modern slavery and encourage a culture of vigilance. Training programs are implemented to ensure that everyone in our network understands the signs of exploitation and knows how to report concerns.
- Risk Assessment: We conduct thorough risk assessments within our supply chain, taking into account geographical locations, nature of work, and the specific industries involved. This enables us to target our efforts where the risks are greatest.
- Contractual Commitments: Our contracts with suppliers explicitly prohibit any form of forced labor or human trafficking. We expect our partners to uphold these standards and actively work towards eradicating such practices from their own operations.
- Continuous Improvement: We recognize that the fight against modern slavery is an ongoing process. We commit to continuously review and enhance our policies, procedures, and due diligence efforts to adapt to evolving challenges and standards.
Our dedication to eradicating modern slavery is not only a legal obligation but a moral imperative. We believe that every individual in our supply chain should be treated with dignity, respect, and fairness. Through collaboration, education, and unwavering commitment, we strive to create an environment where exploitation has no place.
This statement reflects Ted’s Veg’s commitment to ethical business practices and stands as a testament to our ongoing efforts to combat modern slavery. We invite stakeholders and partners to join us in this collective endeavour to build a supply chain that is free from exploitation and respects the inherent value of every individual.
