Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement

UK Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking Policy


  1. Introduction


Lemon Press is committed to exclude slavery and human trafficking within its commercial activities under the UK Modern Slavery Act 2015, and to ensure that its supply chain is also free from such practices.


The term “slavery” describes forced or compulsory labour and includes child labour.


The term “human trafficking” under the act includes commercial sexual exploitation, forced marriage, or the extraction of organs or tissues. However within this policy document, human trafficking relates primarily to the trafficking of humans for labour purposes.


This policy statement relates to actions and activities during our financial year.



  1. Policy


Lemon Press does not condone the concept of Slavery, Human Trafficking or abuse of human rights and will not tolerate its practice within the organisation. Lemon Press requires our supply chain to embrace the same philosophy.


Any supplier who is found to (or suspected of) engaging in any form of slavery or human trafficking shall be reported to the appropriate authorities. Lemon Press shall terminate the business relationship with any supplier found directly guilty of such practice. Lemon Press shall assist suppliers where possible to help eradicate any slavery practices uncovered within their own supply chain.

  1. Due Diligence


Lemon Press undertakes due diligence when considering taking on new suppliers, and regularly reviews its existing suppliers. Supplier checks are undertaken on any form of slavery (including forced or compulsory or child labour) at the same time as all other forms of business verification (such as financial and industry body certification).


As part of the overall assessment of risks within our business activities, the risk of Modern Slavery and

Human Trafficking within our supply chain will be evaluated.


Within our own organisation, background verification is undertaken on all employees and contracted staff to confirm their right to employment. Lemon Press will freely provide help and support to any employee or contracted staff member who has concerns relating to this subject.

Covid-19 Update

During these uncertain times, we want to reassure all our clients that production remains unaffected, and we continue to print and fulfil all current and new orders to the high-quality standards you all know and love.

Internally safeguards have been put in place at Lemon Press including following procedures and guidance supplied by the BPIF (British Printing Industries Federation).

Sales and estimating continue as normal but to minimise risks, we have reduced the teams' attendance at our premises. Therefore staff that can complete their tasks remotely are set up to work from home.
