Ian in India

As part of an ongoing commitment to ensuring ethical management across the whole business, Frugi visits its manufacturing suppliers in India every six months.

The most recent trip saw chairman, Ian Scott, and head of supply, Katie Julian, head off on a whistle stop tour to Delhi, Mumbai, Calcutta, Tiruppur, Coimbatore and Bangalore.

Scott said: “Visiting the Frugi supply base was extremely important. Our business is about doing the right thing for people, communities and the environment and so as chairman it is crucial for me to visit our factories and meet the teams working with us.

“I was very impressed with the calibre of people we have in our business and we are working with very good suppliers that we can be proud of.”
