ETHICAL TRADING POLICY

UK FACTORIES / UK SUPPLIERS & OVERSEAS MANUFACTURERS

Ethical trade means different things to different people.

In particular, some people refer to “ethical trade” as an umbrella term for all types of business practices that promote more socially and/or environmentally responsible trade.

Others use the term in a much narrower sense, referring specifically to the labour practices in a company's supply chain.

In both cases we work very hard to ensure we practice best policy for not only ourselves and our employees but also for our partner factories in UK and abroad.

We are proud to be a UK manufacturer and support UK manufacturing.
