C&A does not buy any apparel from manufactures based in Xinjiang province and we have not contracted any fabric or yarn mill located in this region either. We do not tolerate any kind of forced, bonded or prison labor, or any kind of unauthorized subcontracting in our supply chain.
SPIEGEL allegations are without foundation
We firmly reject the accusations made against C&A by the German magazine Der Spiegel. The report is biased and draws false conclusions. It paints a picture of the culture and values of our company that bears no relation to reality.
The apparel industry is facing an unprecedented crisis that no one has ever experienced. Like all apparel retailers, C&A is severely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Within a few days, all of our 1,400 stores across Europe had to be closed indefinitely due to government restrictions.
