CCA launches production standards to promote Chinese cotton

The China Cotton Association (CCA) has issued a set of production standards for the country’s cotton industry to fill up gaps and promote the image of Chinese cotton. The standards were launched a few weeks back as their absence affected global competitiveness. The boycott of Xinjiang cotton by some foreign brands was also a reason for the launch.

The Better Cotton Initiative (BCI), a Switzerland-based cotton industry organisation, decided in March this year to suspend the certification of cotton from Xinjiang citing heightened difficulty in conducting a credible due diligence in the region, echoing Western accusations of alleged forced labour abuses in the region.

CCA will create Chinese cotton products of fine quality by Chinese brands, allowing more people to better understand Chinese cotton, according to Chinese media reports.

Through the new standards, the association is also helping growers to further improve production methods, ensure the supply of high-quality cotton and safeguard the rights and interests of workers.
