The purpose of this policy is to address the issue of modern slavery and human trafficking.
Modern slavery is a crime and a gross violation of fundamental human rights. It takes various forms, such as slavery, servitude, forced and compulsory labour and human trafficking, all of which have in common the deprivation of a person's liberty by another in order to exploit them for personal or commercial gain.
The Real Wrap has a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery and we are committed to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure modern slavery is not taking place anywhere in our business.
This policy applies to all persons working for us or on our behalf in any capacity, including employees at all levels, directors, officers, agency workers, seconded workers, agents, contractors, suppliers or any other people or bodies associated with the business.
All the management team have overall responsibility for ensuring this policy complies with our legal obligations, and that all those under our control comply with it.
The effectiveness of this policy will be monitored and reviewed by the HR Department to ensure the Company’s continuing compliance with relevant legislation, to meet business requirements, and to identify areas in need of improvement.
The HR Department has primary and day-to-day responsibility in relation to those directly employed by us for implementing this policy and monitoring its use and effectiveness and dealing with any queries about it.
All persons working for The Real Wrap must ensure that they read, understand and comply with this policy.
The prevention, detection and reporting of modern slavery in any part of our business or supply chains is the responsibility of all those working for us or under our control. All persons working for The Real Wrap are required to avoid any activity that might lead to, or suggest, a breach of this policy.
All persons working for The Real Wrap are encouraged to raise concerns about any issue or suspicion of modern slavery in any parts of our business or supply chains of any supplier at the earliest possible stage.
This policy forms part of the HR policies and is available on request.
All employees are required to communicate our zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery to all suppliers, contractors and business partners at the outset of our business relationship with them and reinforce our approach as appropriate thereafter.
In order to give effect to our zero-tolerance approach, we are developing systems to ensure that those in our supply chain and those who work for us implement our policy and we do already have some implemented systems in place together with the Group’s business practices.
Any breach of this policy will generally be treated as gross misconduct and may result in dismissal without notice.
We may terminate our relationship with individuals and organisations working on our behalf if they do not comply with this policy.
This policy details measures that must be taken due to changes and threats presented by the current COVID-19 pandemic. A full risk assessment has been conducted, is available for all staff on request. The risk assessment and this policy shall be updated weekly minimum, or earlier should any relevant government and/or scientific guidance prompt any changes to our situation and necessary controls to ensure the safety of our staff and products.
Staff should work from home were feasible. Where not feasible, staff on site must adhere to the following measures, in addition to existing personal hygiene requirements, as defined by the Risk Assessment.
Social distancing of at least 2m between persons must be obeyed whenever possible. Breaks and work patterns should be adjusted where feasible to support this. Hands must be washed frequently and sanitised using the hand dispensers located around both units, particularly after touching common surfaces such as door handles. Common surfaces should be wiped down with sanitiser throughout the day. Equipment i.e. computer keyboards should not be shared between staff and should be cleaned or wiped down daily.
Where appropriate distancing is not feasible and staff must work face to face for prolonged periods i.e. on some workstations in the High Care facility, these staff will be at a higher risk of infection and therefore will be required to wear a visor whilst working in close proximity to others. Visors will be available for all other members of staff on an optional basis. Appropriate use, hygiene and storage of visors is detailed in the procedure Use of Face Visors for Infectious Disease Control (SOP0099), with records kept on the Visor Control Sheet (PCS0099).
Non-essential visitors and contractors are discouraged from entering the site, and remote meetings should be conducted where feasible. Where this is not possible, the visitor/contractor should complete the COVID-19 Visitor and Contractor Questionnaire in addition to the Visitor/Contractor Regulations and Questionnaire (PCS005) prior to entering the site. It is the responsibility of the host to ensure that the interviewee reads, understands and completes the above-mentioned questionnaires, and adheres to the measures whilst in site.
Any staff having been in contact with anyone showing the following symptoms in the previous 14 days should not come into work and should notify their manager. If any staff are already on site and either begin to experience symptoms, or learn that others they have been in contact with in the previous 14 days have reason to believe they may be infected, the staff member should leave the site immediately and notify management.
Cough / Fever / Vomiting / Difficulty breathing / Tiredness / Diarrhoea / Headache / Loss of taste or smell / Chest pain / Skin rash / Sore throat / Aches and pains
Staff with reason to believe that they, or someone in their household, are potentially infected should call 111.
Interviews and meetings should be conducted remotely where feasibly. Where this is not possible, the interviewee should complete the COVID-19 Visitor and Contractor Questionnaire in addition to the Visitor/Contractor Regulations and Questionnaire (PCS005) prior to entering the site. It is the responsibility of the host to ensure that the interviewee reads, understands and completes the above-mentioned questionnaires, and adheres to the measures whilst in site. Taking interviewees into areas where social distancing is not feasible i.e. High Care production room is discouraged and requires authorisation of a Director or the Technical Manager.
Any staff returning to the site after being away due to furlough, holiday, sickness or any other reason must read the current policy and complete the Return to work and new staff questionnaire in addition to the Return to work questionnaire (PCS0093). The questionnaire must be reviewed, and entry authorised by a member of senior management, depending on the information provided in the questionnaire before the returning staff member can enter the site.
Hand sanitisers should be carried in cabins and hands sanitised frequently throughout the day. Avoid making any physical contact with others i.e. shaking hands and ensure social distancing is maintained where possible. Hands should be cleaned or sanitised after leaving each customer site. If facilities at customer sites must be used (i.e. toilet), distancing measures must be followed where possible and hands washed where appropriate including on exiting the facility and before re-entering the vehicle, or use of the hand sanitiser where hand wash taps are not available. The wearing of face masks is encouraged in customer sites where distancing is not feasible. Agency staff are discouraged, however where essential they must follow the measures set out in this policy and complete the questionnaires as defined within “New staff”.
Any persons arriving in the UK from overseas must isolate accordingly in line with the current Government guidance before entering the company premises.

We are the first food-to-go manufacturer in the world to achieve carbon-negative status. We are working closely with specialist emissions advisors to offset our carbon emissions and improve the lives of people in less fortunate countries.
• We have worked with all our suppliers to develop effective and economically viable alternatives to single-use packaging. We have avoided “solutions” which give the perception of being sustainable yet may be worse than the current option.
• Cellulose lined sandwich wedge launched in Autumn 2020. Industrially compostable and 100% recyclable through mixed recycling streams.
• Only using FSC card. Card sourced from responsibly managed forests.
• Switch to RPET for all hard-clear plastic as used in salad pots, snack pots, platters etc. This is made from 95-100% recycled plastic and has been recyclable nationwide since the early 1990’s. Our supplier produces RPET in the UK within a carbon neutral factory powered by hydro and solar electricity.
• Reducing plastic used in packaging by switch to card alternatives where appropriate. Started with our Kraft Salad Bowls in Autumn 2019, switching to plastic-free card platter boxes in Spring 2022.
• Moving towards bio-plastic films for flow-wrapped items in Spring 2022. Working with suppliers to develop effectives films, aiming to achieve maximum shelf-life and maintain hermetic seal over product life, including for hot items.
• Removed adhesive labels from majority of products which can cause issues within recycling streams. Switching to FSC certified card bands, keeping materials separate for easy recycling.
• Researching and supporting the development of on-site composters and their potential use within catering facilities. This would eradicate the need for recycling streams which reach industrial composters.
• We are always looking for ways to educate and engage with customers about are sustainability efforts.
• Encourage greater recycling and provide compelling information about the environmental benefits of behavioural changes through responsible waste disposal
• Our enhanced design and branding service works to produce awareness campaigns through packaging and POS materials.
• We also are looking at initiatives that address and seek to mitigate the uneven provision of recycling facilities around the country and how these affect our customers. Whilst our packaging is widely recyclable that doesn’t mean it is universally possible.
• Switch to biofuels used in our vans.
• All our vehicles run on Euro-6 engines, the most CO2 efficient engine out there.
• Trialling Electric vehicles on our local routes.
• All our delivery routes are mapped daily to ensure they are going the most efficient route to avoid doubling back on ourselves. Where appropriate we backhaul ingredients from suppliers
• All drivers are trained in house on safe and effective driving techniques, part of this covers economical driving. The in-van trackers monitor and detect harsh breaking and accelerating, drivers are investigated should this be out of the ordinary.
• We record van fuel consumption daily, there are targets set based on the route they take, and drivers are incentivised to hit their targets
• For our deliveries we use plastic reusable bread trays. They are designed to fit an optimum number of sandwiches in (average 50).
• Adding more plant-based options to our menu with every update.
• 25% of our menu is plantbased (including drinks/snacks).
• Partnership with Oumph! to create a range designed for the ‘flexitarian’ market, encouraging a reduction in meat consumption with great tasting alternatives.
• All factory food-waste sent to anaerobic digestion chambers. Here it is turned into electricity, gas and fertiliser to power our local city of Bristol.
• Partnered with local charity Fare Share South-West to ensure our product overruns do not go to waste. They are distributed across Bristol to help feel the vulnerable.
• Working with local brewery to turn our waste bread crusts into beer.
• Careful operational planning to avoid ingredient over-ordering and unnecessary food-waste.
This policy forms part of the HR policies and is available on request.
It is intended that there will be continued improvement in this area. Progress will be regularly reviewed and discussed at the Management review meetings.
