Primark dumps Indian suppliers for using child labour

Jun '08
Primark, is one of the well known retail garment chain that provides stylish and chic garments to the fashion savvy buyers at competitive price. The clothing giant has recently sacked three of its Indian suppliers for using child labour.

The UK based company has nearly 170 stores nationwide and has now removed all the garments manufactured by these Indian manufacturers from the its branches.

The three suppliers from Tirupur, Tamil Nadu were subcontracting embroidery and sequin work on dresses from children who worked from home.

Primark made it very clear that it will be taking serious action against all its suppliers who do not follow strict ethical standards set by the company and any kind of backslide is not at all welcomed under any circumstance.

The Retail Chain, owned by Associated British Foods (ABF), the second-biggest clothing chain of Britain, offers cut-price fashion on high streets of UK. Almost the entire range of garments is sourced from low-cost suppliers who are based in Asia.

However, this move by Primark has brought in an immense amount of pressure on Asian suppliers, as they are already facing a cut throat competition.
