ALDI UK publishes its 2018 Modern Slavery Statement
In June 2019, ALDI UK published its third Modern Slavery Statement. The statement is published in accordance with Section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and it explains the steps taken by ALDI UK during 2018 to prevent modern slavery and human trafficking in its business and supply chains.
Modern slavery is a global problem affecting every economy, industry and sector. Latest figures from the UN’s International Labour Organisation estimated that more than 40 million people were victims of modern slavery. Human trafficking, forced labour and the exploitation of vulnerable workers are abuses of basic human rights and have no place in our business or supply chain. Preventing these abuses from happening is a global, complex issue.
ALDI operates with honesty and integrity wherever we do business. We respect human rights and treat the people in our supply chain who make, grow and supply our products fairly. In 2018 we made positive progress in preventing and tackling modern slavery, but there is more work to be done. During 2019, we are committed to continuing our proactive approach.
