Seafish Guidance on writing a Modern Slavery Statement
Seafish ran a workshop on 10 March 2016 to help seafood companies understand the wording of the legislation, but also the practical steps which companies in the seafood sector should take to consider the appropriate levels of risk assessment, and action, that they should put in place to address potential modern slavery issues, both in their supply chain and their direct operations. A Seafish guidance note has been produced to provide more specific information about how companies in the seafood sector might think about the content of their statement.
Significance for seafood businesses:
