Aldi first to launch traceable textile in Australia
Aug '17
Aldi has become the first retailer in Australia to bring the traceable textile label to their customers. Aldi's new Made in Green is the Oeko-Tex association's first traceable textile label. With the launch of the label, the company is looking forward to bring focus to a transparent supply chain, to help customers make an informed decision.   

The traceable textile label ensures that the labelled products have been tested for harmful substances, produced under safe and socially responsible conditions and in environmentally friendly facilities. Each product features a unique ID or QR code that allows consumers to trace its supply chain.

Companies along the textile supply chain can label their finished and semi-finished products with Made in Green by Oeko-Tex, provided that all product components are certified according to the Standarad 100 by Oeko-Tex and all relevant supplying production facilities are STeP by Oeko-Tex certified. STeP by Oeko-Tex is an independent certification system that allows a transparent analysis of production facilities sustainability and social responsibility efforts. Its six modules consider fair working conditions, quality management, environmentally friendly processing technologies and chemical management.

Aldi Australia introduced the Standard 100 by Oeko-Tex in 2009 on their home textiles ensuring product safety for their customers. (RR)
