Modern Day Anti- Slavery Statement
This statement is made pursuant to s.54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and sets out the steps that Devenish Nutrition Ltd. and its subsidiaries Hi Peak Feeds and A-One Feeds have taken and are continuing to take to ensure that modern slavery or human trafficking is not taking place within our business or supply chain.
Modern slavery encompasses slavery, servitude, human trafficking and forced labour. Devenish and its subsidiaries Hi Peak Feeds and A-One Feeds have a zero-tolerance approach to any form of modern slavery. We are committed to acting ethically and with integrity and transparency in all business dealings and to putting effective systems and controls in place to safeguard against any form of modern slavery taking place within the business or our supply chain.
Devenish is a science-based solutions provider to the food and feed industries. Headquartered in Belfast, Devenish provides high-quality animal nutritional solutions to the poultry, pig, ruminant, companion, equine and aqua feed sectors from their ten mills worldwide, exporting to over 25 countries across the world.
Hi Peak Feeds are the UK and Ireland’s only 100% organic feed mill, producing a range of feeds, blends and speciality products from their mill in Sheffield. Offering nationwide delivery, Hi Peak is dedicated to delivering innovative products and solutions for the organic sector through their research and development programme.
A-One Feeds is a premium supplier of feed and supplements for piglets, game and ruminants in the UK, Ireland and Denmark.
Devenish, Hi Peak Feeds and A-One Feeds all have their individual approved suppliers list. Due diligence has been conducted on all the suppliers before they are added to the lists. This due diligence includes the antislavery legislation from the Modern Slavery Act ensuring that they confirm that no part of their business operation contradicts this policy.
We are working with all our current suppliers to ensure that they are also working to the modern slavery legislation and gaining written confirmation of their adherence.
Our efforts to monitor and reduce the risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring within our supply chains involve (where possible) building long-standing relationships with suppliers and contractors who understand and are clear about the expected behaviours to enable us to:
- establish and assess areas of potential risk in our business and supply chains;
- monitor potential risk areas in our business and supply chains;
- reduce the risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring in our business and supply chains;
- provide adequate protection for whistleblowers.
