M&S to step up Bangladesh sourcing


Currently buying £1 billion worth of clothes from Bangladesh each year, M&S intends to step up its purchases to make the country its top sourcing location for apparel products. The brand wishes to acquire more garments from Bangladesh due to supplier obligations and product diversification. It no longer aims to source basic sourcing, reports Textile Focus.

M&S has increased sourcing from Bangladesh by 30 per cent year on year in the last three years. It imports a variety of garments from the country. Besides, it also provides manufacturers technological, design and finance assistance to help them stay in business. It collaborates with 12 green factories in the country.

Bangladesh’s clothing industry has undergone significant transformation in the last few years. The country is no longer a provider of basic clothing. It has become more aggressive in protecting the production environment. Factory owners in the country have begun to repair structural issues with the support of Accord, Alliance, and the government, and are making their factories an example of safety.
