We all have a responsibility to be alert to the risks of potential Slavery and Human trafficking activities however small, both in our business and in the wider supply chain. My expectation is that our management teams and our employee’s raise any concerns they have and that we apply due diligence and act on any concerns raised.
We also must ensure that our suppliers are aware of our policies and promote the same high standards. Our anti-slavery statement reflects our commitment to acting ethically and with integrity in all our supply chain relationships and to ensuring that slavery and human trafficking is not taking place anywhere in our supply chains.
The UK Modern Slavery Act 2015 (the ‘Act’) requires businesses with an annual turnover of at least 36m to state the actions they have taken during the previous financial year to ensure modern slavery is not taking place in their operations and supply chains. This statement refers to our 2017/2018 financial year.
Entier is the largest independent catering and facilities management company in the UK providing offshore and onshore services across several sectors from Oil & Gas (both offshore and marine), Education, to events and high end private dining. It was set up in 2008 and has grown to an annual turnover of £53million operating in over 22 countries.
Our business consists of four business areas:
- RSG (offshore) - contract catering, laundry and accommodation services for marine, platforms and drilling.
- FRESH (onshore) - contract catering and cleaning services.
- Wilde Thyme (events) – catering and delivery of onshore events and production of delivered food services.
- Entier Technical Services – maintenance, prevention and installation of catering equipment.
Our supply chain includes the sourcing of materials, foods, consumables and labour related to the provision of client contracted services.
We are committed to ensuring that all suppliers adhere to the Entier Supplier Code of Conduct which ensures that operations are completed ethically and with integrity. To ensure the requirements of the Code of Conduct are consistently met and that conformance with the Code can be verified, we expect our suppliers to put in place appropriate management systems and business processes.
Where possible we will build long standing relationships with local suppliers and make our business partners clear on our expectations and requirements.
We expect our international supply chains to have suitable anti-slavery and human trafficking policies and processes in place. This is monitored through visits or requirements for third party audits to be completed to verify compliance.
SUPPLIER ADHERENCE TO OUR VALUES
We expect all in our supply chain to adopt a zero-tolerance approach to human trafficking and slavery and comply with our company values.
All Directors and relevant employees have been briefed on the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking.
EFFECTIVENESS IN COMBATING SLAVERY AND HUMAN TRAFFICKING
Regular communication and contact with suppliers to emphasise our expectations and ensure adherence and implementation in line with these;
Effective use of labour monitoring and payroll systems;
Completion of compliance audits.
