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, showing their name, address, employees’ range, percentage of male and female workers, and the stage of processing they perform. The supplier list includes 1st tier and 2nd tier suppliers and manufacturer subcontractors. 1st tier suppliers refer to manufacturers and 2nd tier suppliers refer to processing factories (e.g. printing, embroidery). The list considers all active suppliers that are located in several countries all over the world and it does not consider only the occasional ones (with annual volume less than 20.000 pcs for the apparel suppliers, and with annual volume less than 10.000 pcs. for accessories and shoes suppliers). 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 with others, as well as some phased out may occur. The suppliers have been classified depending on the products they produce, that are apparel, accessories and shoes.
