ABP UK - Stop Modern Slavery

It's estimated that today at least 20,000 victims of Modern Slavery live and work right here in the UK. That's why at ABP we're doing all we can to help our people and our partners understand the issue, tackle it at root cause, and prevent any form of exploitation from entering our workplace.

To address the issue at government level, Parliament passed The Modern Slavery Act 2015, the first of its kind in Europe, and one of the first in the world, to specifically address slavery and trafficking in the 21st century.

Alongside new legislation that encourages businesses to take action to ensure their end-
to-end supply chains are slavery-free, ABP UK has made a strong commitment to act against this critical issue within the UK food processing industry and launched our own Anti-Modern Slavery campaign.
