‘Challenges and difficulties’ remain at scandal hit fashion chain Boohoo

‘Challenges and difficulties’ remain at Boohoo: Fashion giant publishes final report following supply chain scandal

The retired judge who carried out an investigation into the supply chain scandal at Boohoo warned that ‘challenges and difficulties’ remain at the fast fashion group. 

Sir Brian Leveson was appointed to provide oversight for Boohoo’s Agenda For Change programme in late 2020 after Alison Levitt QC found ‘serious issues’ in the company’s supply chain. 

The group, which has recently launched a collaboration with American actress Megan Fox, introduced the programme after allegations of ill-treatment of staff at ware- houses in Leicester in 2020. 

In Leveson’s fifth report, published by Boohoo yesterday, he said: ‘I do not pretend that the conclusion of the Agenda For Change programme represents the completion of each aspect of each recommendation made in the review. 

‘I have no doubt that there will continue to be challenges and difficulties… and Boohoo must be prepared to demonstrate that it has exercised due diligence to ensure that legal and ethical standards have been maintained by all both in the business itself or in its supply chain.’
