WASHINGTON DC - Industry body Cotton USA and scientific traceability service Oritain have signed a partnership to provide forensic verification of origin for all US cotton in what is being described as a global industry first.

The partnership addresses the high potential for fraud in complex textile supply chains where illegal blending and substitution of cotton fibre can lead to major sustainability and corporate social responsibility issues for brands and manufacturers.

Cotton USA and Oritain say their collaboration will give brands and retailers the assurance they need to make responsible sourcing and purchasing decisions.
