Zalando to delist Boohoo products over worker rights allegations

BERLIN, July 7 (Reuters) - German online fashion retailer Zalando will delist all products made by Britain’s Boohoo following a media report about dire working conditions in a English factory that supplied the popular brand.

Boohoo shares have slumped since The Sunday Times newspaper said workers in a factory in Leicester, central England, making clothes destined for Boohoo were being paid as little as 3.50 pounds ($4.38) an hour.

Zalando said in a statement that it would define specific actions to address human rights issues identified in Boohoo’s supply chain and would only discuss renewing a commercial relationship when Boohoo had taken corrective measures. (Reporting by Emma Thomasson)
