COPENHAGEN – Danish retailer Bestseller, which owns the Jack & Jones brand, is imposing retrospective price reductions, order cancellations, and 90-day delays in payment of invoices across its supply chain. Further details of the company’s poor purchasing practices have emerged shortly after the company announced it is a signatory to the ILO’s ‘call to action’ which aims to – ironically – “protect the livelihoods of garment workers globally.”
Research by the Worker Rights Consortium (WRC) among Bestseller’s suppliers found Bestseller is cancelling up to 20 per cent of orders already completed or in process – without compensation. The company is also imposing price cuts of up to 25 per cent on the orders it is accepting.
