Modern Slavery Statement

Modern slavery is a crime and a violation of fundamental human rights. It takes various forms, such as slavery, servitude, forced and compulsory labour and human trafficking, all of which have in common the deprivation of a person's liberty by another in order to exploit them for personal or commercial gain.

We, Loon Fung, oppose modern slavery in all its forms and:

• are committed to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business dealings and relationships;

• are committed to improving our practices to combat slavery and human trafficking in our business and supply chain; and

• fully support the principles and aims of the Modern Slavery Act 2015.

We are a chain of Chinese supermarket stores in the UK, offering a range of oriental food products to customers. We have 5 stores which are all based in London. We employ approximately 240 employees across the business. Our supply chains include a range of global product suppliers, including well-known brands.

We have an Anti-slavery and Human Trafficking Policy in place which reflects our commitment to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships and to implementing and enforcing appropriate practices to ensure slavery and human trafficking is not taking place anywhere in our supply chains.

Our policy applies to all persons working for us or on our behalf in any capacity, including employees at all levels, directors, officers, agency workers, seconded workers, volunteers, interns, agents, contractors, external consultants, third-party representatives and business partners.

We understand that our supply chains may give rise to modern slavery risks. As part of our initiative to identify and mitigate risk:

• Staff are encouraged to raise concerns about any issue or suspicion of modern slavery in any parts of our business or supply chains of any supplier tier at the earliest possible stage.

• If staff are unsure about whether a particular act, the treatment of workers more generally, or their working conditions within any tier of our supply chains constitutes any of the various forms of modern slavery, they must raise it with their manager.

• If staff believe or suspect a breach of our policy has occurred or that it may occur, they must report it in accordance with our Whistleblowing Policy as soon as possible.

• With the welfare and safety of local workers as a priority, we aim to give the appropriate support and guidance to our suppliers.

• We aim to encourage openness and will support anyone who raises genuine concerns in good faith under our policy, even if they turn out to be mistaken. We are committed to ensuring no one suffers any detrimental treatment as a result of reporting in good faith their suspicion that modern slavery of whatever form is or may be taking place in any part of our own business or in any of our supply chains.

• A member of staff who breaches our policy is liable to disciplinary action, which could result in dismissal for misconduct or gross misconduct.

• Key staff are identified in monitoring compliance with our policy.

• We train our staff on our policy as appropriate.

This statement has been approved by the Board.
