Who we are

Meltemi is part of the Alsico group one of Europe’s largest producers of work clothing, delivering over 15 million garments a year from its dedicated production units worldwide.

Meltemi has always had a strong link with the NHS having supplied Trusts across the UK for 30 years. We are on the NHS Supply chain Staff Uniform Framework and the frameworks for NHS CPC, SBS, DPS and ESPO. We supply NHS, private healthcare organisations, local government offices, private businesses and individuals.

Our aim is to make the supply of high quality staff uniforms straightforward, transparent and easy to manage.

What we do

We are committed to doing the right thing. That means having an open, honest and respectful relationship with our customers and being fair and supportive with our suppliers and staff.

We feel strongly about ethical trading and because we have complete control of the entire manufacturing process you can be confident in the quality of our garments and also the ethical way in which they are being produced.

We understand that uniforms play a part in achieving your bigger aims and that our service offer will make your objectives more achievable. That’s why we put customer service at the heart of our business.

We are passionate about ….

We are passionate about our responsibilities towards our working community and are committed to doing the right thing. We believe it is our responsibility to ensure that every worker within our supply chain is respected, treated with fairness and protected. We are members of the Ethical Trading Initiative and follow the nine guiding principles of the ETI Base Code.

  • Employment is freely given
  • Freedom of association and the right to collective bargaining are respected
  • Working conditions are safe and hygienic
  • Child labour shall not be used
  • Living wages are paid
  • Working hours are not excessive
  • No discrimination is practiced
  • Regular employment is provided
  • No harsh or inhumane treatment is allowed

We believe that wherever our garments are produced, we need to be sure that working conditions reflect the best practice available locally and staff are as well cared for as our team in the UK.

Labour Standards Assurance Scheme

Our work in the NHS means Labour Standards Assurance Scheme (LSAS) monitoring focuses on reducing the risk of labour standard abuses within our supply chain going undetected or without resolution. We have been awarded level 3 status and are well on the way to achieving the top level, level 4 with 12 of the 15 principles required already in place. We believe this is one of the best performances in the healthcare industry.
