Coles names Asian clothing suppliers

Coles has published a list of Asian factories behind its clothing range as part of the supermarket giant’s bid to be more transparent.

The names and addresses of the Indian, Cambodian and Vietnamese factories which make Coles’ Mix apparel are now up for the public to view on Coles’ website.

This follows similar moves by Kmart, Target and other retailers after a Bangladesh garment factory collapsed in April 2013, killing more than 1,100 people.
