The Co-operative Group's commitment to fairtrade produce has recently expanded to their clothing range. The Co-operative clothing now offer a range of corporate clothing for your business that is made from 100% fairtrade certified cotton.

The importance of Fairtrade produce is that it provides both the security of long-term contracts as well as an added social premium that goes towards various welfare programs such as water supplies, education and medical supplies in the countries and farms that produce the raw materials used in food and garment production.

The range includes many expected garments that any business may need such as Unisex Pique Polo and T Shirts, long aprons, bar aprons and bib aprons as well. This addition to their range compliments the many other benefits there are in buying your corporate/work wear from The Co-operative such as:

• No minimum order
• Very competitive prices
• Extensive colour, style and size choice

Mark Wilkinson, Managing Director Designate of Co-operative Clothing, said “At the Co-Operative Clothing we are committed to ethical sourcing which is why these fairtrade certified cotton garments are manufactured in a factory that meets both SA800 social accountability standards and ISO14000 Environmental Standards”.

Mark added, “This monitoring extends well beyond just quality to ensure that employees' working conditions, recreational amenities, local services and general standard of living are to acceptable levels, in line with the values and principles of The Co-operative Group.”
