Control Union India has signed an exclusive collaboration agreement with TEXPROCIL (Cotton Textile Export Promotion Council) to design and deliver a traceability program for Indian farm cotton.
The program, General Certificate of Conformity (GCC), is a joint initiative of Control Union India and TEXPROCIL to provide a credible and traceable mechanism to validate the authenticity of Indian farm cotton and allied products manufacturing.
The aim of the GCC is to provide a screening process for Indian farm cotton and record identification of actual goods movement to ensure traceability. This program will benefit the entire textile supply chain using Indian farm cotton, from harvesting through responsible manufacturing, providing credible assurance to retailers, exporters, and brands.
“We are happy to have spearheaded this initiative that will allow for a complete traceability of the entire textile supply chain and help deliver a credible and traceable mechanism to validate the authenticity of Indian farm cotton and allied products manufacturing,” said Dr. Binay Kumar Choudhury, Chairman of Control Union India.
TEXPROCIL is an autonomous body set up by the Government of India in 1954 to promote exports of Indian Cotton Textile products across the world.
With its foundation in agriculture, Control Union Certifications has focused its efforts in developing services around the sustainability of the industry's supply chains which feed into the food, feed, forestry, biomass, bioenergy, social compliance and textiles markets. With 'boots on the ground' in more than 70 countries, Control Union Certifications is uniquely placed to manage challenges with today's global marketplace.
