Gildan again gets Oeko-Tex certification
May '11
Gildan has once again received the stringent Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certificate for its entire branded product line that includes T-shirts, sport shirts, fleece, innerwear, and socks. The company has been able to successfully renew its Standard 100 certification every year since 2004.

Oeko-Tex Standard 100, the internationally recognized testing and certification system for textile and apparel production, guarantees that products are free of harmful substances.

Garry Bell, Vice President, global marketing for Gildan says, “strict 'Environmental Code of Practices' adopted by Gildan is in accordance with its commitment to environment-friendly processes in all of its production centres. The company also tries to innovate and adopt newer technologies that contribute to reducing environmental footprint at each and every stage of manufacturing”.
