May 2023

More than a week after 16 workers were hospitalized with severe burns following a garment factory explosion in the central Bangladeshi city of Gazipur, answers are still scarce.

Though Mango last refreshed its data in Open Supply Hub in January, a spokesperson from the Spanish retailer told Sourcing Journal that it hasn’t worked with Cotton Club (BD) since 2021. Larisse Mac Donald, a representative from Zalando said that the e-tailer worked “indirectly” with the factory through one of its suppliers and that it is “deeply saddened” by the incident. Inditex and Kontoor Brands did not respond to requests for a statement.
