Fabrimode NV – Bel&Bo

Bel&Bo is a Belgian fashion brand that joined FWF in December 2014. A first Brand Performance Check will be held after the first year of membership.

Brand Performance Check 2018

Bel&Bo has shown progress and met most of FWF’s performance requirements for its third year of membership. The company reached a monitoring threshold of 80% in 2017 and remains in the good category with a score of 59. Bel&Bo developed a systematic approach to monitor the production units with consistent use of the FWF audit quality assessment tool. The remediation process is organised in a structured way with the formulation of specific and detailed Corrective Action Plans for the production locations, visits that include more general and in-depth discussions about progress and adequate follow-up of complaints.

For the 2017 financial year, 27% of FOB was monitored through FWF audits, while 50% of production was monitored through third-party audits that meet FWF quality requirements. Bel&Bo has a consolidation strategy with the specific formulated target for the ‘tail end’ to have 100 fewer production units in 2018 compared to the start of the Bel&Bo FWF membership in 2014.

FWF encourages Bel&Bo to consolidate its supply base by limiting the number of suppliers in its tail end, which will allow Bel&Bo to improve working conditions in a more efficient and effective way. FWF recommends Bel&Bo to further develop the monitoring system and to improve on efficiency during the remediation process. As Bangladesh is the main production country for Bel&Bo, FWF emphasises that Bel&Bo should prioritise monitoring of high-risk areas in the tail end, with a focus on the FWF enhanced monitoring programme for Bangladesh. Bel&Bo is recommended to mitigate root causes for excessive overtime.

Score: 59, % under monitoring: 80, Category: Good
