LPP S.A.'s response to allegations of abuses in Myanmar garment factories

We have been observing the situation in Burma with concern for over a year and a half.

We are in contact with other brands and we try to monitor the situation in the factories.

However, due to the lack of a local office, we rely on information from our suppliers.

Analyzing the data you have sent I can confirm that we do have cooperation with 3 or the 4 factories you mention.

  1. Unifa Handbag
  2. Myanmar Bestex
  3. Huiyuan
