Transparency in Supply Chains Statement

Melitta UK Ltd. is an award-winning market leader
in the supply of household products.

Melitta UK Ltd is a leading supplier of both branded and private label household and professional catering products. Supplying aluminium foil, cling film, baking paper, food bags and coffee machines across the retail, catering, and hospitality sectors, Melitta UK Ltd. is the company behind the following brands: Bacofoil, Melitta, Wrapmaster and Caterwrap.

Melitta UK Ltd. employs around 275 staff and operates from a world-class manufacturing and warehousing facility in Telford, UK.

We take our moral and legal responsibilities towards our employees and those within our supply chain seriously. We are committed to complying with the requirements of the Human Slavery Act 2015 and to implementing measures to reduce the risk of human slavery and trafficking. We are a member of the Supplier Ethical Data Exchange (SEDEX) and EcoVadis, which allow our customers to view our labour standards information.

As an employer we take steps to ensure that all employees have the legal right to work within the UK. As part of our employment procedure, we have processes in place to check the authenticity of documentation provided and we also regularly monitor the immigration status of our employees and proactively act when visa expiry approaches.

Most of our supply base is from within the EU. However, we do use several non-EU companies. We have a risk assessment process in place for all suppliers, both new and those with an on-going relationship with us. Dependant on the level of risk identified, risk reduction actions will be carried out. This process is in line with the German Supply Chain Due Diligence Act and is run through the Integrity Next platform.

An independent audit company completed ethical audits on two of our major suppliers on our behalf, and our own personnel visited four of our suppliers during the year.

This area of the business will be monitored and reviewed at least annually, with this statement updated accordingly.
