In addressing the important issue of Ethical Sourcing, Best&Less would like to reassure its customers that we take this issue very seriously, and are committed to ensuring safe and fair working conditions for our suppliers in Bangladesh.
Signing the Oxfam Fire and Safety Accord is one way to ensure this, but is not the only way. With a small footprint of suppliers in Bangladesh, we manage the safety and quality control with 100% of our suppliers at an individual level. We fully support the objectives of the Accord, and that is reflected in our stringent Ethical Sourcing Code.
We know that our customers care about the conditions in which their garments are produced, and we support our conscientious customers. We share these priorities, and are committed to delivering to our customer’s products that are produced ethically and responsibly.
Before we begin a relationship with any supplier, we audit and accredit them to ensure they comply with our stringent Code. Our factories are audited at multiple levels by our own senior quality teams, third party accredited agencies and a dedicated Asia Inspection partner.
Our responsibilities are carried out across our entire supply chain network internationally, and not limited to Bangladesh.
We have no more than 15 single story factories in Bangladesh, which are all regulated with fire and safety standards- such as clear fire exits, a supply of fire extinguishers and on site nurses to ensure employee well-being.
