Modern Slavery Policy

This statement is made on behalf of the board of Harrison Catering Services Limited with regards to the Modern Slavery Act 2015. The company acknowledges responsibility from within its own business and that from within its supply chains, to ensure transparency within the organisation and with suppliers of goods and services to the organisation.

We are a family owned business providing catering services to schools and industry. The company has its head office in the UK and all service outlets are in the UK. The company has an annual turnover in excess of the £36m threshold.

Our supply chains include procurement of agency staff, produce, consumables, facilities maintenance, utilities and waste management.

We are committed to ensuring there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in our supply chains or in any part of our own business. Our Anti-slavery policy reflects our commitment to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships and to enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure slavery and human trafficking is not taking place anywhere in our supply chains.  

As part of the companies due diligence processes into slavery and human trafficking the supplier approval process incorporates a review of controls undertaken by the supplier. We continue to monitor this through our procurement process.

The company will not support or deal with any business knowingly involved in slavery or human trafficking. A zero tolerance approach will be reinforced to all those in our supply chain and we expect all those in our supply chain and contractors to comply with our values.

To provide a high level of understanding of the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in our supply chains and our business, we make relevant members of team who are involved in the procurement process aware of our commitment.

Our employees are encouraged to identify and report any potential breaches of our anti-slavery policy through the whistle-blowers process.

This policy statement is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes our company slavery and human trafficking statement for the previous financial year.
