Our Supply Chain & Due Diligence Processes

We currently work with a variety of UK and international suppliers and professional advisors to support the business activities we carry out from our UK headquarters and manufacturing facility.

We are in the process of completing another thorough assessment of the risk of modern slavery practices within our supplier chain with the focus on our manufacturing and service suppliers, having concluded that such risks are low for our professional services providers. The review has found no evidence of concern. We will continue to manage this risk through the use of reputable suppliers and by taking a risk-based approach to assessing our whole supplier base. We have established a process to conduct an annual review of our key and high-risk suppliers based on their strategic importance, size, nature of their business and with reference the Corruption Perception Index for country information. The review has been conducted through the use of a formal questionnaire and information published on suppliers’ websites. Using any supplier feedback, we will seek to continually improve our review process.


To ensure a high level of understanding of the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in our business, we continue to provide awareness training to all our employees, and more specific e-learning training for all managerial and supervisory employees, as well as those directly involved in the supply chain operations.

This statement is made in accordance with s.54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 (the “Act”) and constitutes our anti-slavery and human trafficking statement for the financial year from 1 April 2020 to 31 March 2021. It will be reviewed again in September 2022. This statement applies to M&I Materials Ltd as the entity that falls within the criteria defined in the Act.
