Our Supply Chains
As a responsible supplier and employer, Holts makes every effort to ensure that all of the products we supply to our customers are manufactured, or sourced, in an ethical manner. We work with our suppliers to confirm that the practices inherent in those suppliers comply with all relevant legislation regarding employee working conditions.
In addition, Holts are members of SEDEX and are regularly audited both by SEDEX and by our customers, many of whom are major, multi-national retailers, to ensure regulatory compliance.
In view of the policies and processes outlined above, we have a framework that adequately safeguards Holts against slavery and human trafficking within its own business and that of its suppliers. We believe that there is a very low risk of slavery and human trafficking taking place within Holts or our supply chain.
