As of December 2022, BESTSELLER partners with approximately 800 businesses across the world who manufacture products for BESTSELLER brands. To be transparent about our supply chain, BESTSELLER publishes its public factory list once every two months.

Our Public Factory List includes a full account of our Tier 1 business partners, related Tier 0 partners, as well as our preferred materials suppliers (Tier 2).

When we talk about Tier 0 we are referring to a supplier, the business entity BESTSELLER places orders with. To become a BESTSELLER supplier, the business must have gone through the onboarding process, during which they sign BETSELLER's Supplier Agreement, whereby they agree to uphold our Code of Conduct (CoC) and related policies. Typically, but not always, suppliers are agents for Tier 1 factories – some suppliers can be a factory too and have in-house materials manufacturing facilities too.

OUR TOP SOURCING COUNTRIES

By number of tier 1 factories

For BESTSELLER, Tier 1 refers to the production unit where the products are assembled and finished. This can cover business units involved in specific functions, such as cut-pack, embroidery, washing, dyeing, printing and finishing of garments, and tanneries. All production units are subject to the standards outlined in our CoC and related supply chain policies, and are routinely assessed as part of BESTSELLER's Factory Standards Programme.

Our sourcing partner list also includes our Tier 2 Preferred Material Suppliers. These are a list of materials manufacturers that we recommend to our Tier 0 and Tier 1 partners to source materials from. The preferred materials suppliers have agreed to uphold BESTSELLER's CoC, and their production facilities pass our basic requirements and are covered by the Factory Standards Programme.

The Global Supply Chain team oversee all of BESTSELLER's suppliers. One of the Global Supply Chain's function, Responsible Sourcing, manages the compliance function for our Tier 1 (factories) and Tier 0 (suppliers) business partners, as well as our preferred Tier 2 (materials manufacturers).

The list is updated six times a year and can be downloaded below in a Microsoft Excel format.

Please note, the lists do not include factories that are being offboarded from our supply chain. You can read about our ACT-aligned Responsible Offboarding policy and processes here.
