Anti slavery policy statement
IDC LTD has a zero-tolerance approach to slavery and is committed to preventing acts of slavery and human trafficking from occurring within both its business and supply chain, and imposes those same high standards on its contractors, suppliers and other business partners.
IDC Ltd is a supplier of Foodservice Products to many organisations from NHS and Local Authorities to HORECA. Our suppliers and our customers are based in the UK. We procure goods and services in excess of £30 million per year. We work with a wide range of different suppliers, subcontractors and partners, each of which will have their own subcontractors, affiliates and associate entities. IDC Ltd therefore is connected to multiple entities through numerous contractual relationships.
