As part of our commitment to combating modern slavery, we have produced a modern slavery policy.

All our employees benefit from a positive working environment in which their rights and freedom are fully respected and honoured. We believe in acting ethically and with integrity and transparency. As a group, we are always working with the local community and recruit around the local depots to minimise risk of human trafficking. We also carry out right-to-work checks where a prospective employee is a non-EU resident.

As part of our efforts to monitor and reduce the risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring within our supply chains, we check and review our suppliers are registered for Alcohol Wholesaler Registration Scheme (AWRS), where applicable, for VAT and other registrations, as applicable.

HT Drinks Holdings Ltd and its subsidiaries regularly evaluate the nature and extent of its exposure to the risk of modern slavery occurring in its supply chain.

As an organisation we are committed to ensuring we don’t support or deal with any businesses or individuals that are knowingly involved in slavery or human trafficking. We will continue to develop our procedures to ensure our supply chains are free from slavery and human trafficking. We will carry out further staff training and carry out a full supply chain review to ensure we have identified any key risks.
