APL Business Ethics

25th November 2016

A customer recently questioned us for importing our tissue paper and paper carrier bags from China. The reason is China's poor record on human rights.

What a busy month, we will soon be giving away Olympic chocolate medals with every box order, -it seems only 5 minutes ago that we were packing off swingball games to our Wimbledon winners, and £100 cash to our UEFA cup winner!
