finaL REPORT COMPLAINT IN China AT FACTORY SUPPLYING TAKKO
In November 2012 the German magazine Der Spiegel published an article containing allegations that Takko Holding GmbH had sourced products from a prison in China. FWF has treated that report as a complaint.
Takko has acknowledged to Der Spiegel and to Fair Wear Foundation that their products were made in the factory in question. The order was placed through agents, and Takko asserts that they had already terminated the business relationship with the agents due to reliability concerns. Takko has stated they were unaware of the use of prison labour by the agent.
FWF required Takko to implement a number of measures to address the conditions which lead to the inclusion of a prison factory in Takko’s supply chain. FWF has verified how these measures have been implemented during Takko’s next Brand Performance Check.Download
