Modern Slavery Policy
Introduction from the founder
Our residential cookery school and homeware store takes its responsibilities outlined within the Modern Slavery Act 2015 very seriously. We have robust safeguards in place to ensure that the obligations of this act are complied with. This policy outlines our practices and details the care we take throughout our supply chain and within the business organisation.
This statement relates to the actions and activities during our current financial year beginning April 2020.
Company mission statement
Our purpose at All Hallows Farmhouse cookery school is to provide a welcoming environment to every individual and to promote and inspire home cookery selecting the best available ingredients and sourcing, as far as possible, local produce. We also wish to promote the development of organic agriculture so that we can help contribute in the protection of the health of the soil and biodiversity, along with the health of the food producers and the guests, clients and supporters who cook and eat our recipes and the meals created at the farmhouse.
Our homeware products are sourced from artisan crafts people who share our values.
Company policies on slavery and human trafficking
We regularly review our supply chain to evaluate any human trafficking and slavery risks.
We conduct supplier self-assessments and audits throughout our supply chain with a focus on worker safety, slavery, human trafficking, child labour and other legal requirements.
Our policy is to only partner with ethical companies so we can be sure that slavery and human trafficking does not exist in our supply chain.
Many of our suppliers have been long term business partners and it is crucial for All Hallows Farmhouse Cookery School and Mulberry & Fig that they share our high ethical and quality standards. This long term cooperation establishes trust and transparency on both sides.
If we feel that our ethical requirements are not adhered to, we will terminate any supplier relationship.
Lisa Osman trading as All Hallows and Mulberry & Fig is totally committed to ethical business dealings carried out with respect and integrity.
Our employees and suppliers are expected to ensure a working environment that is open to diversity and inclusivity. We expect that all of our staff members and visitors act with integrity and respect.
Risk evaluation and due diligence
The greatest risk of slavery and human trafficking is perceived to lie in our supply chain of raw ingredients and materials. We therefore discuss our policies or review those of new suppliers to ensure each organisation sets similar standards to our own. Any negative change to a supplier’s policy will result in the termination of that relationship, unless we can be assured that the break in ethical code has been an oversight and swiftly rectified with additional safeguards put in place.
