Fondazione Industrie Cotone e Lino becomes ICA associate
Fondazione Industrie Cotone e Lino has become the latest Affiliated Association member of International Cotton Association (ICA). Specifically aimed at 'likeminded' cotton associations, the membership category of ICA provides a mechanism to reinforce and support contract sanctity across all areas of the cotton supply chain and right now has 13 members.

"The addition of Fondazione Industrie Cotone e Linoto the community of ICA member associations contributes towards a safer international trading environment. We welcome collaboration with organisations like this which reinforce our effort," said ICA managing director, Bill Kingdon. "The process of becoming an Affiliated Association is simple – support our values and promote the message of contract sanctity."

"On Behalf of the Board and Associates of Fondazione Industrie Cotone e Lino, I thank ICA for accepting our membership. We believe that being together is a strategic move in order to improve international engagement," said Fondazione Industrie Cotone e Lino president, Simone Canclini.

The Italian based Fondazione Industrie Cotone e Linowas was set up in 1998 from the cotton, linen and related fibres association. It is a strategic 'laboratory' where culture is instrumental to progress and for the promotion of natural fibres.

Among its promotional strategies, Fondazione ICL has become the single shareholder of two worldwide renowned textile exhibitions, Proposte (home textiles) and SItex SpA organiser of Milano Unica (apparel textiles and accessories), thus reinforcing its engagement in the promotion and safeguard of the textile industry.
