Eurofins Consumer Products Assurance is now offering Fast Forward audits to help customers ensure sustainable supply chains.
Fast Forward is a collaborative continuous improvement programme focused on labour standards in the UK supply chain.
Developed with apparel retailers in 2014 to address concerns about worker exploitation being undetected by existing social compliance audits, it aims to provide safe and ethical working conditions across sectors and allow businesses to operate on a level playing field.
Fast Forward combines a proven forensic auditing methodology with a collaborative beyond-audit programme to support suppliers and brands in their continuous improvement efforts.
Fast Forward audits are currently available to brands and retailers that have manufacturing, warehousing, goods not for resale and/or service provider supply chains in the UK and that supply to Fast Forward member brands. Only member brands can commission a Fast Forward audit.
