A quartet of key UK fashion names have topped a new global ranking for omnichannel marketing excellence. But many UK firms are still missing out on basic opportunities to optimise e-commerce, resulting in lost revenue.
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.
A group of 50 British lawmakers, retailers such as Marks & Spencer and New Look, and investors and NGOs called on Monday for urgent action to prevent the exploitation of garment factory workers in the United Kingdom.
Boohoo Group wrote a letter to UK Home Secretary Priti Patel, saying that the company is taking action to probe allegations of malpractice in its supply chain and that it asks for the government to take action as well.
