Hong Kong-Based, garment manufacturing giant, Epic Group, has collaborated with Serai, a B2B digital platform, to ensure the cotton it uses is sourced sustainably. With the aid of HSBC-owned Serai, Epic has launched an initiative to track the cotton used in its fabrics from farm to the final product.
Both the companies will work together to create a network that spans Epic's whole fabric supply chain, from mills to farms, to ensure that the cotton used in every piece of clothing is sourced sustainably. In the future, Epic Group wants to expand this network to include all raw materials used in its textiles.
The firm claims it has followed customer demands for corporations to adhere to responsible sourcing guidelines, with consumers emphasizing the importance of knowing that the items they wear are made from sustainable sources.
Sunil Daryanani, joint CEO of Epic Group, said that supply chain transparency has become a cornerstone of their operations and is motivated by the principles that Epic Group is based on. Gaining insight into their supply chain to guarantee ethical sourcing is critical to them being a responsible global business and delivering on their promise to the consumers in their never-ending quest for sustainability.
Serai introduced its supply chain solution earlier this year to assist global brands and manufacturers access and combine complicated supply chain data from different sources in order to get a complete insight into their global supply chain.
Serai’s CEO, Vivek Ramachandran, said that at Serai, they want to influence the future of supply chains by making it simple for organizations to collect and manage complicated data to get in-depth visibility into their global supply chains. This data can assist businesses in increasing operational efficiency, managing underlying risks, and ultimately achieving greater transparency and trust in their extended supply chain. They're thrilled to be a part of Epic Group's sustainable journey.
Ciel Textile, a Mauritius-based apparel manufacturer, was the first to test the supply chain traceability system with Serai earlier this month.
