Magnum Packaging (NE) Ltd, Modern Slavery Act Statement, 2019
Magnum Packaging’s core business is in the import and distribution of Packaging & Disposable Products to Packaging Merchants, Cash & Carry’s, Catering Wholesalers and Retail Sector. Although we are sourcing globally but main imports are from Eastern Europe, Turkey and Far East as well as UK. Our emphasis is on building long term business relationships with both our dedicated suppliers as well as customers.
Magnum Packaging is fully committed to respecting human rights and ethical behaviour right across both our own operation and our supply chain. In our operation here in UK, all our workforce is employed on a full time and permanent basis, mainly working on 5 days and 40 hours per week basis. Magnum Packaging is very conscious in ensuring that slavery, human trafficking and forced labour have no place in or around our business and has therefore put processes/policies in place to strengthen our approach to tackling any risk. Our business is built on being the champion for employees, helping them enjoy a better quality of living and an easier way of life. Our values also reflect our expectation of how other businesses engage with their employees, customers and suppliers.
Magnum Packaging have no tolerance for modern slavery, human trafficking and forced labour within our own business. Risks are quite low with our East European suppliers. We recognize, however, that through our supply chain from Far East countries we could be exposed to the modern slavery, human trafficking and child labour. In order to eradicate and minimize this risk and implement our policy, every supplier is vetted , before initiating any business with them, by a visit to their manufacturing site and observe their working practice, working conditions and particularly that there are no child labour in place.
Although currently , due to our company size , we are not required to enforce Modern Slavery Act statement but as a responsible and ethical business we have already implemented the policy and been carefully inspecting every manufacturing site prior to engaging business cooperation with any new supplier.
Over the next 12 months, we will continue to strengthen our approach to managing the risk of modern day slavery within our business and our supply chain. We aim to:
Ensure that our sourcing and purchasing staff have an appropriate level of understanding of the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in our own business and more importantly in our supply chains.
We will endeavour to write to all our suppliers that their business complies with the Modern Slavery Act and that they have appropriate and effective processes in place to prevent modern slavery in their business and their supply chains.
Review our approach to identify any additional steps that we can undertake to combat the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in our supply chains. We will endeavour to speak to ground staff/workforce of every supplier to be visited during the next year and assess if suppliers are meeting the minimum pay standards and labour laws in their respective country, no child labour is employed, and workers are not forced to do overtime.
This statement refers to the financial year ending 31st March 2019 and has been approved by the Board of Directors on 15th February 2019.
