Microphone Why personal contact helps tackle food sector point-of-recruitment slavery risks

Vanessa Di Cuffa, UK people change director, ABP Food, talks with Ian Welsh about how modern slavery legislation has driven behaviour change in the meat industry in the UK, and in particular on point-of-recruitment risks.

She argues that transparency and establishing personal relationships with supply chain workers are crucial. They also debate how to get around the forced-labour challenges for food sector companies when traditional business models focus on driving down costs.
