The Universal Declaration of Human Rights provides that the inherent dignity and the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world.
This policy applies to all individuals working for Heckfield Park Farm LImited including directors, employees, workers and contractors. We expect our suppliers and business partners to respect and adhere to this policy in all dealings.

We understand that respecting human rights includes avoiding infringing on the human rights of others, addressing adverse impacts should they occur and contributing to the fuller enjoyment of human rights as part of our commitment to our employees, our customers and any individuals that we are in contact with, either directly or indirectly.
