N2 - This report looks at evidence of exploitation and forced labour in sectors within the UK food industry.<br/>It draws upon in-depth testimonies from 62 migrant workers mainly originating from the EU and China.<br/>Three sub-sectors of the food industry are represented in the study:<br/>agriculture, food processing and minority ethnic catering. The research is based<br/>in five areas of the UK: south Lincolnshire and the Wash area, east-central<br/>Scotland (encompassing Dundee, Angus, Fife, and Perth and Kinross), Bristol<br/>and the south-west of England, London and Liverpool.<br/>The UK government recently reaffirmed its commitment to eradicating<br/>modern-day slavery by creating the criminal offence of ‘forced labour’.<br/>Focusing on sub-sectors of the economy known to be home to significant<br/>levels of exploitation, the report seeks to identify forced labour in four ways. It:<br/>• lists the key forced labour indicators affecting the 62 migrants interviewed;<br/>• highlights the labour-market contexts closely associated with forced labour;<br/>• discusses the practices employers engage in that, if severe enough or<br/>numerous enough, lead to forced labour situations;<br/>• identifies the negative outcomes that result from workers experiencing<br/>forced labour.
