UK retailers are urging strong government action as they deal with the Leicester garment factory scandal. The main company in the spotlight, Boohoo Group, and others are calling for a factory licensing system.
Boohoo is moving quickly to protect its business as a supply chain scandal causes e-tailers such as Asos and Zalando to delist its brands. But the firm also said its wholesale ops are small as D2C is its focus.
Britain's Boohoo defended its supply chain practices on Thursday after a garment workers' rights group said the online fashion retailer was putting workers at risk of coronavirus infection in its Leicester factories.
