The Group sells a range of over 100,000 stock lines across an extensive range of categories. Our suppliers are similarly diverse from individual factories to large multinational companies. Product safety and quality has to be at the forefront when selecting any product for our range. Appropriate safety certification is obtained (backed by independent third party testing where necessary) and each division has a team dedicated to maintaining these standards.
Our Hong Kong office has been sourcing product for group companies and third parties for over 30 years and has a Quality Manager dedicated to ensure the ongoing quality of our products. All suppliers within Home Shopping and Education are required to produce accredited certification from a recognised accreditation body which has been awarded within the last 12 months. This accreditation is monitored to ensure that the supplier keeps this up to date.
Within our Home Shopping division, various products in our household and children’s furniture ranges are procured from FSC and sustainable sources, whilst within Findel Education all products are assessed for quality including REACH, ROHS, FSC and EU timber regulations compliance. All of Findel Education’s suppliers are required to adhere to the Ethical Trading Initiative Base Code and Findel Education is a proud member of the UN Global Compact. Findel Education also became a member of FIRA in 2013, the leading association for the UK furniture industry.
