Buying Non-Consumables Ethically
How do you know the labour standards of the workers who made the plates your customers eat off? Were your staff uniforms sewn together by underage workers? How ethical are the paper straws you’re using?
Matthew will take you on a whistle stop tour of this complex area, explaining what steps you can take to ensure you and your customers can be proud of the way you do business.
Matthew is the CEO of Beat Concepts, a leading supplier of delivery equipment to online food delivery companies and staff uniforms to the restaurant industry.
In 2016, Matthew spearheaded a complete overhaul of Beat Concepts’ ethical sourcing procedures, incorporating amongst other things an industry leading CSR policy, systematic supplier audits, and membership to SEDEX.
