The Gender Pay Gap at Graham’s the Family Dairy
We collected our data on 5th April 2020. The figures show that Graham’s the Family Dairy has a mean gender pay gap of 3% and a median gender pay gap of 3%.
Expressed as a percentage
Mean Gender pay gap in hourly pay
Median Gender pay gap in hourly pay
The gender pay gap is the difference between the hourly rate of pay of male employees and female employees, expressed as a percentage of the hourly pay rate of the male employees. The gender pay gap is reported on both a mean (average) and median (mid-point on a distribution) basis
23% of females and 56% of males received bonus.
The mean bonus gender pay gap is 61 % and the median bonus gender pay gap is a 30%.
The gender bonus is higher for our male employees due to our core workforce being made up of male drivers. The simple reason for this is that fewer women apply for these roles during our recruitment processes. When they do, they are treated equally and paid the same as men.
We are prioritising the following areas for action: building gender pay gap analysis into our management processes and continuing to actively promote gender balance within the Organisation.
We will explore how we can continue to attract women into our organisation to create an even gender balance. As an equal opportunities employer, we firmly believe in appointing the best candidates into the role, regardless of their gender or other factors covered by the Equality Act.
I confirm that our data has been calculated accordingly to the requirements of the Equality Act 2010 (Gender Pay Gap Information) Regulations 2017.

Modern Slavery Act 2015 Transparency Statement
Graham's Dairies Limited is committed to ensuring that its business and supply chains are free from slavery and human trafficking. To date, we have reviewed our current practices and procedures relating to supply chain due diligence and associated risk management in order to understand how we can best develop in this area.
Section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 ("MSA") places a legal requirement on large businesses such as Graham's Dairies Limited to publish an annual statement of the steps that the organisation has taken during the previous financial year to ensure that modern slavery (including human trafficking) is not taking place in its business or supply chain. This statement is made pursuant to the MSA for the financial year ending 5 April 2020.
ORGANISATIONAL STRUCTURE & SUPPLY CHAINS
Graham's Dairies Limited is a manufacturer and supplier of dairy products in the agriculture and food processing sectors.
We are the parent company of Graham's The Family Dairy Limited (the "Group"). We have over 600 employees and operate in the United Kingdom.
We have an annual worldwide turnover of £114 million.
Our business is organised into five business units: Bridge of Allan, Glenfield, Nairn produce and distribute a variety of dairy products to customers. Inverurie, Inverkeithing distribute a variety of dairy products to customers.
OUR SUPPLY CHAINS
We operate three manufacturing sites in the United Kingdom. We procure goods and services from approximately 700 suppliers based in three countries, namely the United Kingdom, Germany and France. Of these suppliers, we have direct contractual relationships with 700 first-tier suppliers and the remainder are lower tier suppliers, with whom our first-tier suppliers’ contract.
As part of Graham's Dairies Limited's commitment to ensuring that our business and supply chain are slavery-free, we are soon to implement a modern slavery policy.
Everyone who works for Graham's Dairies Limited will be obliged to sign and comply with the modern slavery policy. All our suppliers will be required to accept contractual obligations to comply with our Supplier Code of Conduct and to oblige suppliers who supply them with goods/services to do so.
Our Managing Director has overall responsibility for our policies relating to ethics and conduct and is also responsible for the implementation, management and day-to-day operation of such policies.
RISK MONITORING & COMPLIANCE
As part of our initiative to identify and address risks of slavery in our supply chain we:
- Carry out pre-contractual checks on suppliers, by way of scoring supplier-completed assessment forms, which scoring determines whether or not we enter into a contract with that supplier.
- Carry out an annual risk rating of all our suppliers by re-running the assessments described immediately above.
- Ensure all suppliers are BRC (British Retail Consortium) Global Standard for Food Safety accredited.
- Only engage workers from reputable employment agencies and always obtain evidence verifying their right to work in the United Kingdom before accepting a worker.
- Encourage openness and support anyone who raises genuine concern in good faith relating to slavery or human trafficking. We are committed to ensuring that no one suffers any detrimental treatment as a result of reporting in good faith their suspicion that slavery of whatever form is or may be taking place in any part of our own business or in any of our supply chains.
Following a review of the effectiveness of the steps we have taken to date to ensure that there is no slavery or human trafficking in our business or supply chains, we intend to take the following further steps to combat slavery and human trafficking:
- Implement a modern slavery policy, to which our workers and suppliers will be required to adhere.
- Require our directors to undertake training and our managers to attend awareness sessions.
- Develop a set of key performance indicators (KPIs) to measure how effective we have been in ensuring that slavery and human trafficking are not taking place in any part of our business or supply chains.
- Ensure adherence to the ETI Base Code and raise staff awareness.
