Fibre2fashion partners with WRAP to spread message of social compliance

Worldwide Responsible Accredited Production (WRAP) announced that Fibre2Fashion, the world’s largest B2B platforms for the global Textile-Apparel and Fashion industry, has become its new partner to promote social and environmental compliance in the industry.

“We are pleased to have partners working with us, companies that are creating e-business platforms that include WRAP certification in their supplier profiles,” WRAP’s President and CEO Steve Jesseph said, “When we attend trade shows and industry events, we are often approached by buyers who tell us they only want to do business with responsible companies – who can demonstrate that they are in compliance with generally recognized international labor and environmental standards".


He added by saying, "Over the past 10 years, WRAP has grown to become the leading certification program for labor-intensive consumer products manufacturing. Based on the growth of e-business and the demand for compliance certification by buyers, these partnerships clearly demonstrate that one can ‘do well by going good’”.


Mr. Venkat Subramanyan, Executive Director, Fibre2fashion quotes that “Fibre2Fashion.com is glad to associate with WRAP. Today the challenges lie in identifying the right kind of suppliers with whom buyers can do business globally and Fibre2fashion is instrumental in identifying such quality suppliers and connecting them with ease to the buyers.” Mr. Venkat also added that “We look forward to promote the social compliance cause globally within the apparel manufacturing community.”


Steve Jesseph added, “We encourage you to visit WRAP partners and see first-hand the benefits of working on new and exciting business platforms.”
