Modern Slavery Statement

MODERN SLAVERY STATEMENT

Our business, OakVilla Trading Ltd is committed to combatting slavery and human trafficking in its business and supply chains, and we make this statement to assist with compliance with the Modern Slavery Act 2015. 

As our business has a turnover of less than £36 million, we do not have a legal obligation to produce a modern slavery statement. However:

  1. We agree that exploitation within all supply chains ending in the UK is a blight on our society, and we are committed to playing our part in eliminating exploitation;
  2. We understand that customers with obligations under the Modern Slavery Act 2015 cannot comply with those duties without our cooperation. 

To that end, we confirm that we have examined our own business and, to the extent that it is reasonably practicable, businesses within our supply chain and we confirm the following:

  1. We confirm that within our own business, no relevant offence relating to slavery or human tracking has been committed. 
  2. We have made enquiries of businesses that supply directly to us outside of the UK and we are confident that no relevant offence is committed in these business. 
  3. Insofar as it was reasonably practicable, we have examined our supply chains and confirm that we found no evidence of slavery or human trafficking. Further details about our business and supply chain are provided below.
