(“Nutrabolt UK”) to prevent modern slavery and human trafficking taken pursuant to the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and has been approved by its Board of Directors on 30 May 2024. It relates to the financial year ending December 31, 2023.

Who We Are
Nutrabolt UK is a subsidiary of Woodbolt Distribution, LLC dba Nutrabolt (“Nutrabolt”). Nutrabolt is a fast-growing, global active health and wellness company with a portfolio of market leading performance-oriented brands that energize and fuel active lifestyles. The company’s disruptive and innovative products compete in the Functional Beverage and Active Nutrition segments, under three consumer-loved brands: C4® (one of the fastest-growing energy drink brands in the United States and the #1 selling global pre-workout brand), XTEND® (the #1 post-workout recovery brand in the United States), and Cellucor® (an award-winning sports nutrition brand created in 2002).

Since its founding over 20 years ago, Nutrabolt has set out to meet the discerning needs of performance athletes and fitness enthusiasts, while appealing beyond this core group to include consumers around the globe who are making healthy, active living a daily priority.

It continues to be a priority of our company to ensure that we trade ethically, source responsibly, and work to prevent modern slavery and human trafficking throughout our organisation and in our supply chain. Nutrabolt operates a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery of any kind within its operations and supply chain.

Our Policies
Nutrabolt is committed to the highest possible standards of ethical, moral, and legal business conduct. Nutrabolt has implemented a global Code of Conduct (the “Code”), the objective of which is to ensure that Nutrabolt and its parent and subsidiary entities operate ethically and in compliance with applicable laws, rules, and regulations. Nutrabolt operates an anonymous reporting hotline for employees and other personnel to report concerns they may have about non-compliance with the Code or other Nutrabolt policies. Nutrabolt’s policies and the Code are regularly reviewed, and employees are trained to ensure that the Code is implemented across the business.

Our Supply Chains
Nutrabolt supply chains primarily involve sourcing ingredients and packaging for its food supplement and beverage products, either directly from the supplier or via its contract manufacturing relationships. We consider the risk of modern slavery within our business and supply chain as low; however, we recognise that there is a potentially higher risk when working with global suppliers.

Nutrabolt strictly prohibits the use of slavery or human trafficking in its business and supply chain. To ensure that all parties in our supply chain, including contractors and contract manufacturers, comply with this prohibition, Nutrabolt and its contract manufacturers have in place a supplier qualification programme. The terms of our agreements with our contract manufacturers and suppliers require that they shall not use forced labour, corporal punishment, or other forms of mental or physical coercion; they shall provide their employees with a safe and healthy workplace in compliance with all applicable laws; they shall only employ persons whose presence is voluntary; and they shall agree to utilize fair employment practices as defined by applicable laws. Nutrabolt specifically reserves the right to terminate its manufacturing and supply agreements in the event a supplier is found to be in breach of such compliance requirements.

Our Training
To ensure that our staff understand and can identify modern slavery and human trafficking risks in our supply chains and business, we will develop and provide appropriate training, with targeted training for personnel in procurement and/or with responsibility for supply chain management.

Our Effectiveness in Eliminating Modern Slavery
We will review the effectiveness of the measures we take in ensuring that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in our supply chains, and we will use this to inform the development of our procedures and best practices.
