Summary

Summary:

Description

Description: 

The UK company created in 2018, is providing consultancy services to existing and emerging manufacturers to help them build a strong and focused internal structure ready to face supply chain protocols and implement good practices.
With extensive international corporate experience in the fashion and other labour intensive industries, the director of the company advises starters, small, and mid sized manufacturers in the transition from small to larger production scales. It guides to gain expertise in supply chain compliance with unique working methods and practical tools created to simplify local and global supply chain protocols.

The UK company can also advise all departments within client organisations to help managers and staff build and collaborate a vision of compliance especially in terms of human rights and health and safety.
With more than 20 years experience, the company has developed a core of activity within the labour intensive industries where the risk of modern slavery is at its greatest
