PERFORMANCE REVIEW

New York Bakery does not have designated key performance indicators against slavery and human trafficking specifically. However we assess the compliance of our business functions by implementing due-diligence mechanisms, including right to work statements and auditing protocols, as appropriate.

This statement is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes our slavery and human trafficking statement for the current financial year.


As part of Grupo Bimbo, New York Bakery is required by law to publish an annual gender pay gap report in respect of the new statutory provisions on Gender Pay Gap reporting. New York Bakery currently employ over 600 associates across the UK and operates two manufacturing sites in the UK and has its HQ in Heathrow, London. The information used to compile this report was taken in March 2019.

Our mean hourly pay gap for women is 4% less than men

Our median hourly pay gap for women is 0% less than men


Pay Quartiles by gender

Gender-Pay-Graph


The male / female split in our quartile figures is broadly aligned with the proportion of men and women in each of those groups.

New York Bakery is satisfied that there is no gender bias in the pay of males and females where our associates perform the same roles.


GENDER BONUS PAY GAP


At New York Bakery we have 42 employers who receive a bonus, 21 males and 21 females, this is predominantly made up of the leadership team (Directors) and Senior managers across the business. The pay gap identified in this report is wholly attributable to the fact that we have disproportionately higher numbers of men in our more senior roles and we are now working hard to address this. This imbalance also explains the difference in the bonus payments where higher payments are made to those in more senior positions and having the majority of males in the more senior levels exacerbates this issue.


Our mean bonus pay gap for women is 74% less than men Our median bonus pay gap for women is 50% less than men.

Proportion of men receiving a bonus is 8% and Proportion of women receiving a bonus is 8%


We are committed to the principles of Diversity and Inclusion and will continue to review our recruitment policies for the more senior roles so that they are aligned with best practice for attracting and retaining our female talent pool.

Grupo Bimbo UK Company Ltd is a leading manufacturer of bagels and continental goods across the UK, and takes great pride in our brand and our image. Grupo Bimbo UK must pay corporation tax on profits made by business after deducting the relevant expenses and reliefs in each country that we operate.

INTRODUCTION

Grupo Bimbo UK is dedicated to comply with all applicable tax regulations and has assembled this document, which is approved by the Board of Grupo Bimbo UK Ltd, to set out the policy and approach to conducting its tax affairs and dealing with tax risk.

There is alignment of the strategy with Grupo Bimbo’s overall approach to corporate governance and risk management.

Grupo Bimbo is subject to taxes in all the countries that it operates and has a low risk approach when it comes to managing tax risk. Although Grupo Bimbo and its subsidiaries, will take steps to claim tax reliefs and incentives in the most efficient way, New York Bakery liaises with external auditors to ensure the company adheres to all regulations, and liaises monthly with the corporate tax team to ensure the whole entity is aligned behind the forward-thinking strategy.
