Benetton has worked with its suppliers for a long time to build a long-term business relationship based on trust and mutual transparency. This commitment allows the annual publication of a Benetton suppliers’ list. Company name, address, employees’ range, percentage of male and female workers, stage of processing and workers’ representation type are indicated in the list. In addition, suppliers have been classified depending on the products they produce, that are apparel, accessories and shoes.
The supplier list includes manufacturers (first-tier suppliers and subcontractors), processing factories (e.g. printing, wet process and other processes) and fabric and yarn mills.
The list considers all active suppliers that are located in several countries all over the world and it does not consider the occasional ones (with annual volume less than 10.000 pcs for the apparel suppliers, and with annual volume less than 5.000 pcs for accessories and shoes suppliers). Considering the volume thresholds, the list accounts for about 95% of manufacturing and processing factories. Among these, due to the impact they have on the environment, we pay particular attention to wet process factories, performing dyeing and washing processes on yarns, fabrics and finished products with a dedicated program.
The list also includes the most important mills providing our manufacturing and other processes suppliers with fabrics and yarns and mainly performing weaving and spinning processes. Considering the same volume thresholds applied for manufacturing and processing factories, the fabric and yarn mills included account for about 80% of Benetton Group product volume. (Yarn suppliers are to be limitedly meant to knitwear production).
Due to the complexity of the supply chain management Benetton will update the supplier list once per year. During the year, in fact, new collaborations may start, as well as some phased out may occur.
