This statement is made pursuant to section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 for the financial year ending 30 June 2016. It sets out the steps that Hakkasan Limited has taken and is continuing to take to seek to ensure that modern slavery or human trafficking (as defined in the Modern Slavery Act 2015) is not taking place within our business or supply chains.
Modern slavery and human trafficking is a crime and a violation of human rights. As a company committed to acting ethically, honestly and transparently, we have a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery and human trafficking.
We are aware of the risk of modern slavery and human trafficking within the hospitality industry and we are committed to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure that it is not taking place anywhere in our own business or in our supply chains. We are also committed to ensuring there is transparency in our own business and in our approach to tackling modern slavery and human trafficking.
Our supply chains include suppliers from across the world. The majority of our suppliers, however, are located within the United Kingdom with food and beverages representing the main categories that we purchase.
We expect that our suppliers and partners share our commitment to tackling modern slavery and human trafficking, and will seek to ensure that their suppliers do the same.
As part of our commitment to ensuring that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in our business and our supply chains, we take the following steps:
- Recruitment – we conduct checks on any new employee including proof of eligibility to work in the UK;
- Suppliers – we ask pertinent questions of our suppliers on their approach to modern slavery;
- Training – we have raised awareness of modern slavery by way of training with relevant head office staff.
As part of our commitment to tackling modern slavery and human trafficking, we will continue to look for ways to improve upon our existing policies and procedures.
