MODERN SLAVERY ACT
Vale Press Ltd - Company No. 3731852 Registered in England & Wales.

Vale Press Ltd is a company manufacturing printed and related goods to a wide customer base across the UK. We employ over 60 members of staff to ensure the highest quality of service.

Vale Press takes its responsibilities very seriously. We are proud to be certified as ISO9001, ISO14001 and FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) compliant.

As a company, we always strive to work to the highest professional standards and comply with all laws, regulations and rules relevant to our business. Our aims are to improve the impact of our business on society. We expect the same high standards from those businesses with which we work. Consequently, we are committed to ensuring that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in any part of our supply chains or in any part of our business.

This statement provides clarity of our standards, specifically focusing on Vale Press Ltd’s compliance with the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and its commitment to prohibiting any form of forced labour or slavery throughout our business and our supply chain.

To be able to achieve this commitment Vale Press Ltd has taken the following steps:

1. We have contacted those businesses which represent 95% by value of our existing supply chain seeking positive confirmation that they are compliant with these legislative requirements;

2. We have introduced these commitments into our procurement process for all new purchasing and contract awards;

3. We have provided awareness training to our staff on the obligations for our business.

Vale Press Ltd continues to review our policies and processes in an effort to go beyond basic social and environmental regulations and to ensure the highest standards in our supply chain, as expected by Vale Press Ltd’s customers, the companies and organisations we work with.

This statement is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes our slavery and human trafficking statement.
