John Day, 54, of Whittington Chase, Kingsmead, and Mark Baker, 41, of Nevill Close, Hanslope, pleaded guilty to acting as unlicensed gangmasters after appearing before Milton Keynes Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday 3 December.
The charges involved Day and Baker supplying workers into a food processing company without a Gangmasters and Labour Abuse Authority (GLAA) licence.
The GLAA declined to confirm the name of the processing firm involved in the incident.
Earlier this month, an illegal gangmaster and his wife were jailed for exploiting at least 41 workers at a catering butchers in the Merseyside area, following an investigation by the GLAA.
The pair were arrested and questioned following a multi-agency day of action in March 2018, titled Operation Brewer, which saw the victims removed from Birtwistles food processing factory in Irlam.
The victims, from Romania, were then taken to a centre to be safeguarded.
Using illegal labour provided by unlicensed gangmasters is also an offence that carries a maximum penalty of six months in prison and a fine.
