United Kingdom: Boohoo launches independent investigation into supply chain

Boohoo commissioned an independent review of its UK supply chain as it takes action to stem growing concerns from investors and customers about the treatment of workers who make its clothes.

The investigation will examine Boohoo suppliers’ compliance with regulations on wages and working practices during the pandemic and will be led by Alison Levitt, a senior lawyer and former principal legal adviser to the Crown Prosecution Service.

Boohoo also announced a £10m investment to “eradicate supply chain malpractice”. John Lyttle, chief executive, told the Financial Times the sum was intended “to show how seriously we are taking the issue”.
