We are fully accredited and have the highest standards of compliance.
We are licensed by the Gangmasters Licencing Authority (GLA) and members of the Association of Labour Providers (ALP).
The GLA works in partnership to protect vulnerable and exploited workers. Its licensing scheme regulates businesses who provide workers to the fresh produce supply chain and horticulture industry, to make sure they meet the employment standards required by law.
As a licence holder we are assessed against GLA licensing standards which cover health and safety, accommodation, pay, transport and training, and that tax, National Insurance and VAT regulations are met.
- Workers receive fair treatment, the pay, benefits and conditions they are entitled to.
- Labour providers are not undercut by those who pay less than the minimum wage or avoid tax. Industry standards are raised.
- Labour users can check their workers come from a legitimate provider and are informed if their labour provider’s licence is revoked.
- Consumers can be assured that their food has been picked and packed in an ethical environment. Illegal activities which lead to a loss of public revenue – income tax, VAT and NI – are reduced.
