C&A´s European Executive Board (EEB) has announced that tests by the TLR International Laboratories (NL) have confirmed that garments sold under C&A's "Bio Cotton" label are free of GM-construct.

These findings cast doubt on recent claims in a German newspaper that textiles marketed as organic" are instead grown from GM seeds. Indeed, several sources named in the original article have already challenged various parts report, which included claims of a large-scale, organised fraud. That aside, C&A's main concern has always been the integrity of its bio cotton supplies ensuring that they are GM free. The test results received so far based representative range of certified products found no evidence that GM seeds were used during cultivation.

"We remain fully committed to C&A's sustainability strategy", stated Andreas Seitz, a member and spokesperson C&A's EEB. “We have made a pledge to our customers we are determined to stand by it: C&A's Bio-Cotton collection is truly organic.C&A's convinced that its customers are increasingly attracted to purchasing great value-for-money merchandise produced in a sustainable and environmentally friendly manner", Seitz underlined. As such, Bio Cotton at C&A provides unique shopping alternative for customers and at the same time supports the sustainable development of the cotton growing industry.

Seitz re-emphasised C&A´s commitment to the continuous improvement of the certification process for organic cotton. "We are fully aware our responsibility to ensure that we can stand behind the claims make regarding certified bio product. Consequently, will work closely with certifying companies and partner organizations do everything possible to further safeguard the integrity of organic cotton merchandise", Seitz said. C&A will also set up additional internal processes to enhance the aspect of traceability, in order that we can demonstrate due diligence throughout the whole organic cotton value chain.
