United Apparel Fiji has become the first company in the Australasia region to attain platinum status as a Worldwide Responsible Accredited Production (WRAP) facility.
The company has been a WRAP gold certified facility for the past two years and had attained gold status at the first attempt. It is a strong believer in the continuous improvement process.
Platinum certifications are awarded to facilities that have demonstrated full compliance with WRAP’s 12 principles for three consecutive certification audits. A platinum facility has to successfully pass every audit with no corrective actions or observations and maintain continuous certification with no gaps between certification periods.
WRAP is the world’s largest independent certification program and mainly focuses on the apparel, footwear and sewn products sector. The WRAP certification program’s objective is to independently monitor and certify compliance with these standards to ensure that sewn products are being produced under lawful, humane and ethical conditions.
Participating facilities voluntarily commit to ensuring that their manufacturing practices will meet these standards and further commit to passing along, on their part, the expectation that their contractors and suppliers likewise comply with these standards.
United Apparel is one of Fiji's leading garment production facilities in the industry, equipped with the latest in advanced manufacturing technology.
