U.K. Home Secretary Theresa May is rallying retailers and suppliers to improve supply chain transparency in a bid to fight modern slavery and worker exploitation. She recently launched a protocol with retailer groups, such as the British Retail Consortium, Fresh Produce Consortium and Food and Drink Federation, that calls for vigilance in guarding supply chains against labor malpractice.
