BGMEA extends deadline for blacklisting EVM

The Bangladesh Garment Manufacturing and Exporters Association (BGMEA) has extended the deadline for blacklisting British clothing retailer Edinburgh Woollen Mill (EWM) to June 05 instead of the earlier May 29.

On May 21, the BGMEA threatened to halt production and any further orders with EWM over nonpayment of dues and demands for unreasonable discounts, despite concluded contracts.

In a letter sent to EWM owner Philip Day, the BGMEA president said the association’s step came after receiving dozens of complaints from suppliers that EWM was avoiding contacts with the suppliers that it owes money to for previous orders.

EWM Group, owned by the British billionaire Philip Day, has quite an impressive array of brands under its fold – Peacock, Jaeger, Austin Reed, Jacque Vert, Country Casuals, Windsmoor, Baumler of Germany, and Bonmarche & Ponden Home.
