YANGON - British retail giant Tesco is exiting Myanmar following claims that one of its suppliers had refused to compensate thousands of its workers after announcing it was closing down.

Gtig Eastar Garment (Myanmar) Co, a Chinese-owned garment factory in the Wartayar Industrial Zone in the city of Yangon, announced its closure in October, seven months after it was badly damaged in a fire.

According to Myanmar Labor News, Gtig Eastar made leather jackets for Tesco’s F&F clothing label. Other brands that have sourced from the factory included C&A, OVS and Zara.
