About Us

We are a provider of Gaming and Entertainment merchandise to retailers and consumers around the world.

Our annual turnover is under £36 million. Although we are not required to make a modern slavery statement under section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015, we are making this voluntary statement to show our commitment to ethical trading principles and to set out the steps we are taking to tackle modern slavery and human trafficking in our business and in our supply chains.

Our supply chains are mainly made up of the following:

  • Factories in China and printing companies from within Europe
  • Our various product lines are made using plastic and ceramic materials

Our Anti-Slavery Policy reflects our commitment to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships and to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure slavery and human trafficking is not taking place anywhere in our supply chains.

Due diligence and risk assessment

To help identify and monitor the risk of slavery and human trafficking in our supply chain we inspect our Factories every 12 -18 months and carry out social, technical and ethical audits to confirm compliance to both local regulations and also against global best in class standards

We vet suppliers and sub-contractors to ensure that they are committed to ethical labour practices]. [We include anti-slavery and human tracking provisions in all our contracts with suppliers.]

We only employ agency workers through reputable employment agencies that adhere to our anti-slavery and human trafficking policy (or equivalent policies.
