HTI Group operates from its base in Fleetwood UK and designs, Manufactures and distributes Toys into the major Retailers across the UK. The Toys HTI sells are sourced from a range of international suppliers mainly from our supply bases in China. All of these international supplier relationships are sourced and managed by our dedicated team based in Hong Kong and the UK.
We have a Code of Conduct on Ethical Trading, which sets out our policy on legislation, child labour, conditions of employment, wages and benefits, health and safety and the environment. This Code of Conduct is stated in our Vendor Manual that all Vendors we use must sign so that they ensure they will comply with the HTI Ethical Policy.
We undertake all reasonable and practical steps, including factory, warehouse and audits, to ensure that our standards are being implemented throughout the businesses of our suppliers and that local legislation and regulations are complied with. We are members of SEDEX and as a benchmark all factories we use should comply with ICTI and/or SMETA. We will assess any instances of non-compliance on a case-by- case basis and will then tailor remedial action appropriately. We will only trade with those who fully comply with this policy or those who are taking verifiable steps towards compliance.
This statement has been approved by our Board of Directors, who will review and update it as necessary on an annual basis.
