Modern Slavery Statement

Fentongollan Farms Ltd Modern Slavery Statement which comes under section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and sets out the steps that we have taken and are continuing to take to ensure that modern slavery or human trafficking is not taking place within our business or supply chain. Modern slavery encompasses slavery, servitude, human trafficking and forced labour.

Fentongollan has a zero-tolerance approach to any form of modern slavery. We are committed to acting ethically, with integrity and transparency in all business dealings and to putting effective systems and controls in place to safeguard against any form of modern slavery taking place within the business or our supply chain.


We are committed to ensuring that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in our supply chain or in any part of our business. Our Human Rights policies reflect our commitment to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships and to implement and enforce effective systems and controls to ensure slavery and human trafficking does not take place anywhere within our supply chain.


In keeping with our commitment to act with integrity in all our business dealings, many of our existing policies ensure that there is no slavery or human trafficking in any part of our supply chain. We have several policies in place relevant to Modern Slavery, all of which are signed off at Director level.

• Employment Policies. • Discrimination & Harassment Policy. • Anti-Bribery and Corruption Policy. • Ethical Trading Policy. • Human Rights Policy.

We are guided by the SA8000 standard to cover a variety of potential issues including child labour, forced labour, health and safety, freedom of association, the right to collective bargaining, discrimination, disciplinary practices, working hours, remuneration, and management systems.


The risk of slavery and human trafficking within our own organisation is substantially avoided and mitigated as a result of our policies and procedures as well as the oversight built into our business operations, and the knowledge and skill of our staff. We assess risk based on several factors such as geographical risk indices pertaining to human rights (e.g., Global Slavery Index Rating), the level of supply chain control, external governance factors and customer ratings. We consider that the most significant risk of slavery and human trafficking is in our supply chain where we undertake procurement activities and where operations and managerial oversight are out of our direct control.

We undertake due diligence when considering new recruitment agencies, and regularly review our existing recruitment agencies.

However, we recognise the limitations of ethical audits to identify modern slavery issues, and to have effective modern slavery due diligence, we need to undertake a range of other methods, as to the appropriate nature of the supply chain.

We ensure that we have competency within our organisation, through training relating to human rights and the awareness of the social accountability standard SA8000.

Human rights awareness training has been further directed to personnel who work in human resources.

Specific supplier standards training is directed at procurement personnel. More general awareness is available throughout the wider organisation through our relevant policies.


Fentongollan Farms ltd will never knowingly enter a business relationship with any organisation involved with slavery, servitude or human trafficking. The senior management of the company accepts responsibility for the implementation of any policy in relation to this matter and for the provision of adequate resources to ensure that slavery, servitude or human trafficking is not taking place in the company or its supply chain.

This statement has been approved by the Managing Directors of Fentongollan Farms Ltd. This statement will be reviewed annually.
