Pretteagood EMEA Ltd

Company information and important details

Pretteagood EMEA Limited is the company trading as Prettea, who own and operate the business. Founded in 2016 as Prettea Limited, the company has changed to enable itself to grow.

With Prettea expanding in to different markets, in 2018, Prettea became Pretteagood EMEA Ltd, to serve the Europe, Middle East, and Asia market. The expansion in to other markets has been significantly disrupted by the Coronavirus pandemic, however it is still the intention of the business for this to commence when viable.

The mission statement for Pretteagood EMEA Ltd is:

To brew inspiration and positivity to our communities, customers, and people, every day, in all that we do, in every cup of tea

 

Why is our mission important? Because it allows us to operate our business in a sustainable, positive and meaningful way to deliver to our customers and to the business, both socially, and financially.

There's three pillars in our mission statement that mean a lot to Prettea, these are:

  • Communities

  • Customers

  • People

We want our mission to apply to all of these pillars, and there are several ways in which we do this, be it through our Pretteagood Foundation, our Charitable Organisation, donating money to local good causes, that matter to us, our customers, and our People.

Tea growing is an industry that has to carefully monitor it's conditions, and worker rights - Prettea cares deeply about these, and only works with suppliers that can fully trace back down the supply chain to ensure there is no slavery, exploitation, or corruption - and this is ensured throughout our business.

We're a responsible business, and we do everything by our commitment to sustainability and responsibility. All of the tea Prettea sells is sourced from growers who are part of the Ethical Tea Partnership, meaning nobody looses out from our business. We're also aware of the environmental impact that tea has - and so all of our teas are packaged without plastic, always, and we're mindful of the waste our business produces. Where plastics do exist in the business, we're working to reduce this with suppliers and remove it completely.

Although there are very few People who work within Prettea at the moment, as we grow, we're keen to keep the experience consistent, that's why everyone who joins our business shares our success with:

  • Free Tea on shift (Retail)

  • Free 100g Bag of Tea every week

  • Learning and development opportunities

  • Flexible working

  • Discount on all products

  • Reduced investment to open a Franchise

We're committed to keeping these benefits for all People who join Prettea, no matter how we grow - without people, we have no business.

Due Diligence

As part of our efforts to monitor and reduce the risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring in our supply chains, we have adopted the following due diligence procedures: 

  • External supplier audits.

Our due diligence procedures aim to:

  • Identify and action potential risks in our business and supply chains.

  • Monitor potential risks in our business and supply chains

  • Reduce the risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring in our business and supply chains.

Risk and compliance

The Company has evaluated the nature and extent of its exposure to the risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring in its UK supply chain through:

  • Evaluating the slavery and human trafficking risks of each new supplier.

  • Reviewing on a regular basis all aspects of the supply chain based on supply chain mapping.

We consider that we operate in a high-risk environment because Tea is grown all across the world, and there are a number of instances where this can be linked to unfair business operations, something which the Company does not endorse.


We do not tolerate slavery and human trafficking in our supply chains. Where there is evidence of failure to comply with our procedures by any of our suppliers, we will seek to terminate our relationship with that supplier immediately.

Effectiveness

The Company uses Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) to measure its effectiveness and ensure that slavery and human trafficking is not taking place in its business and supply chains. These KPIs are as follows:

  • We will contact suppliers to enquire about their modern slavery practices every 12 months.

 

The statement was approved by the board of directors.
