Ahmad Tea has always maintained a working environment which upholds each individual to their highest potential. We foster working relationships based on dignity and respect and pursue our business with the aim of enriching the standard of living for all connected to our brand.
In particular, Ahmad Tea continues to improve its practices to identify and eliminate any slavery and human trafficking in its business and supply chains, in accordance to Section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act (UK) 2015. Ahmad Tea will not knowingly support or do business with any person or organisation involved in slavery or human trafficking.
Policies are in place to minimise any risk of slavery and trafficking in our supply chains by providing due diligence checks on our new contracts and suppliers.
We will continue to assess our supply chains and increase our vigilance in our decisions to work with suppliers and distributors.
In order to give this process a human face, we have appointed a Legal Officer for Ahmad Tea Global Group who monitors the Social Responsibility Standards and receives any concerns arising from them. Our Legal Officer, who is qualified in Human Rights Law, is responsible for monitoring any risk of slavery or human trafficking within the company and to carry out our annual audit of compliance.
Our Legal Officer is required to recommend ways in which we can improve our due diligence and continue to maintain our high standards. Ms Zahra Afshar is our Legal Officer and can be contacted via her email zah[email protected]
