Labour providers face a series of challenges which mean that they need the services of a specialist trade association.

The ALP is the trade association for labour providers in the food and agricultural sectors and is accepted as the representative trade body for labour providers by the Gangmasters and Labour Abuse Authority, Defra, other government departments, industry trade bodies and the supermarkets.

The ALP helps to influence the environment in which you, as a labour provider, operate and provides you with essential information to help you run your business.
