Modern Slavery Policy Statement
Introduction from the Owner of Fairmont & Main Limited
Fairmont & Main Limited is committed to preventing slavery and human trafficking within its business and its supply chains. We continually strive to improve our practices to combat slavery and human trafficking.
We are a distributor, wholesaler and retailer of tableware, houseware, and giftware products, selling market leading products to customers in the UK, with some sales worldwide. We sell to consumers, businesses, and the hospitality sector. We are based in Huddersfield in the UK. Fairmont & Main Limited has around 10 employees.
Our supply chains
Our supply chains involve buying products directly from manufacturers and from distributors. These are primarily based in the Far East (including Sri Lanka, Thailand and China), the EU and North Africa.
Our policies on slavery and human trafficking
We are committed to ensuring that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in our supply chains or in any part of our business. Our Anti-Slavery and Human Trafficking Policy reflects our commitment to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships and to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure that slavery and human trafficking is not taking place anywhere in our supply chains.
Measures we have taken to combat modern slavery and human trafficking
We have taken the following measures to combat modern slavery and human trafficking:
- As part of our initiative to identify and mitigate risk we have in place systems to mitigate the risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring in our supply chains. Our standard purchasing contracts include anti-slavery and human trafficking contractual commitments which our suppliers must comply with.
- We take any failure by a supplier to comply with its contractual obligations very seriously. Our contracts give us the right to end our relationship with a supplier if we have any concerns.
- Our internal recruitment policy is based on procedures that focus on compliance with all applicable legislation. We ensure all employees have the right to work in the UK and we carry out appropriate passport checks.
We will not tolerate slavery and human trafficking within our supply chains and if we identify such practices, we are committed to taking appropriate action, either requiring the supplier to undertake remedial actions or by ending our relationship if necessary.
This statement is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes our slavery and human trafficking statement for the financial year ending 31 May 2023.
