Boohoo dropped by Next, Asos and Zalando over exploitation claims

Three major online retailers have dropped fast fashion brand Boohoo over allegations of low pay and unsafe conditions at a supplier's factories. Next dropped Boohoo clothes from its websites last week, while Asos and Zalando followed suit on Tuesday. "As a result, last week Next removed the Boohoo and Pretty Little Thing branded items it was selling previously, from all Next websites." Zalando, the Berlin-based online fashion store which had €6.4bn sales last year, said it "Has made the decision to delist all products by Boohoo Group and subsidiaries and pause all new business with Boohoo effective 7 July". "Only once all corrective actions have been satisfactorily addressed by Boohoo, can a conversation be revisited to discuss the commercial relationship between Zalando and the Boohoo group moving forward."
