We do not tolerate modern slavery or human trafficking in our organisation or in our supply chain. This statement sets out the steps that we have taken to eliminate, as far as possible, the risk of modern slavery and human trafficking taking place.

UK Vending Ltd which its employees are bases solely in the UK.

OUR BUSINESS

UK Vending Ltd is the leading supplier of vending machines and water coolers in businesses in the UK.

OUR SUPPLY CHAINS

Our supply chains include suppliers of equipment, beverages and associated items

OUR POLICIES ON MODERN SLAVERY AND HUMAN TRAFFICKING

Our opposition to modern slavery and human trafficking is confirmed in our Guiding Principles and reflects our commitment to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships and to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to eliminate, as far as possible, the risk of modern slavery and human trafficking taking place anywhere in our business or supply chains.

DUE DILIGENCE PROCESSES FOR MODERN SLAVERY AND HUMAN TRAFFICKING

As part of our initiative to identify and mitigate the risk of human slavery and human trafficking in our supply chains, we conducted a review of suppliers.

We determined that we are in low risk industries characterised by low volume high value work activity and, following our risk assessment process, the vast majority of our suppliers were similarly identified as being low risk. While we are confident that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking taking place within our direct organisation following this assessment (due in part to our internal checking process and the skill level of employees we typically engaged.

We have also implemented systems to:

  1. Identify and assess potential risk areas in our supply chains – no new supplier will be appointed without them going through our risk assessment
  2. Mitigate the risk of modern slavery and human trafficking occurring in our supply chains, which we manage through our new-supplier process and our contracts which will, going forward, give us the ability to monitor our supply chains and potential risk areas.
  3. Monitor potential risk areas in our supply chains.

SUPPLIER ADHERENCE TO OUR VALUES AND ETHICS

We do not tolerate modern slavery and human trafficking. We have put in place a new- supplier process which will both (i) assess the risk of modern slavery and human trafficking in any new supplier and its own supply chains before we engage with that supplier and (ii) give us the ability to monitor and audit suppliers once they have been engaged.

Our audit, legal and business operations teams are involved in ensuring this process works effectively and will monitor it regularly, adapting as necessary to the changing needs of our business.
