WE APPROVE A SUPPLIER BEFORE WE CAN WORK TOGETHER
Before a new supplier and/or factory can be approved, they need to go through a step-by-step approval process. This is to keep the supplier and factory base manageable and to reduce both quality and social compliance risks. Our team are not allowed to place Hunkemöller orders at unauthorised suppliers and/or in unauthorised factories. We also recognise by working with our suppliers we can achieve more and our aim is to help our suppliers get things right first time. All approved suppliers have access to our online supplier manual.
Each manufacturing location is scored on five levels, ranging from A to E, where A is best-in-class locations and E equals to locations with major findings requiring immediate action. The scorecard includes in-depth information per location in with regards to, for example, wages, working hours, safety, etc. A manufacturing location with a rating of C or lower is required to submit a Corrective Action Plan (CAP) within an agreed timeframe.
