Slavery policy

Organisational Structure of MorsaPack Limited

MorsaPack Limited is controlled by a Board of Directors. The company is located in Manchester UK and carries out its business within Europe.

The company is involved in the provision of packaging materials, machinery (sales and rental) and repair, maintenance, and refurbishment of packaging machines.

The Group considers that modern slavery encompasses:

  • Human trafficking;
  • Forced work, through mental or physical threat;
  • Being owned or controlled by an employer through mental or physical abuse or the threat of abuse;
  • Being dehumanised, treated as a commodity or being bought or sold as property;
  • Being physically constrained or to have restriction placed on freedom of movement.

Our Commitment

The company acknowledges its responsibilities under the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and is committed to preventing slavery and human trafficking within its own businesses and in its supply chains. The company understands that this requires an ongoing review of both its internal practices in relations to its labour force and its supply chains.

The company has a zero-tolerance policy towards slavery of any kind and it will not enter into any business relationship and/or will discontinue any current business relationship with any organisation which knowingly supports or is found to involve itself in slavery, servitude or forced/compulsory labour.

No labour provided to the company is obtained by means of slavery or human trafficking. The company strictly adheres to the minimum standards required in relation to its responsibilities under relevant employment legislation in the area it operates its businesses, and in most cases exceeds those minimums in relation to its employees.

The company offers employments contracts on a guaranteed hours basis only; no offers of employments are made on a zero hours basis.

Part time and fixed-term employees with the company are provided with the same pro-rata contractual entitlements as full time and permanent employees. If these are not offered, the company is able to rely on objectively justifiable grounds.

Company employees are offered a competitive remuneration package and the company prides itself on the additional benefits it is able to offer its employees on a wide variety of platforms. This includes but isn’t limited to higher than average break times, holiday entitlements, working flexibility etc.

Potential Exposure

The company considers its exposure to modern slavery to be limited. Nonetheless, it has taken steps to ensure that such practices do not tape place in its business nor the business of any organisation that supplies goods and/or services to it.

In the operation of its business, the company’s main supply chains are those related to the provision of goods and services. The company considers its main exposure to the risk of slavery and human trafficking to exist in its supply chains.

Steps we take

The company carries out due diligence processes in relation to ensuring slavery and/or human trafficking does not take place in its supply chains.

The group has not, to its knowledge, conducted any business with another organisation which has been found to have involved itself with slavery and/or human trafficking.

In accordance with section 54(4) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015, the company has contacted (or attempted to contact) all first tier suppliers to set out our zero tolerance stance on modern slavery and to ensure that slavery and/or human trafficking is not taking place.

The company has taken action to monitor reports of modern slavery and will cross reference such reports with our first-tier supply chain. The company will discontinue business with any first-tier supplier found by the enforcement authorities to be involved in modern slavery.

The company encourages use of its whistle blowing policy to report any concerns regarding modern slavery and will investigate any complaints thoroughly.
