Primark, the fashion retailer which was first established in Dublin in 1969 and currently has over 350 stores across the UK, Ireland, Europe and the USA, has published information about the factories which manufacture its products on its website. Details include factory names, addresses, number of workers and gender split of the workforce.

Primark clothes are made in countries including Bangladesh, India, Pakistan and China. The company says it has a strict code of conduct in place designed to ensure that the factories it works with respect the rights of their workforce.

“For a number of years, we’ve been working closely with industry partners sharing information about where Primark products are made. This has included for example, details of our suppliers, their factories, as well as our supply chain practices. Partners have extended from bodies such as the Ethical Trading Initiative, to organisations monitoring industry standards, notably the International Labour Organisation’s Better Work programme,” a Primark spokesperson said.

“Information about suppliers’ factories in the 31 countries from which Primark sources product is now available on our website. Details include factory names, addresses, number of workers and gender split of the workforce,” the spokesperson said.

A factory is detailed on the map only after it has produced products for Primark for a year and has become an established supplier. During the first year, a factory has to demonstrate that it can consistently work to Primark’s ethical standards, as well as meet its commercial requirements in areas such as quality and timely delivery. Factories featured on the map produce over 95 per cent of Primark’s products for sale in its stores.

“Primark does not own any factories and requires all its suppliers’ factories to meet its Code of Conduct, which is based on the standards of the International Labour Organisation, a United Nations body. Primark’s Ethical Trade and Environmental Sustainability Team, which consists of over 100 people based in key sourcing countries, is responsible for monitoring compliance with its Code. This team will also be responsible for providing updates to the Primark Global Sourcing Map on a twice-yearly basis,” according to the spokesperson. (SV)
