We are thrilled to announce the addition of four new Contributors to our growing community dedicated to promote sustainable and responsible organic cotton practices. Milan House, NSL Textiles and Radheyshyam Cottex are joining OCA in the supplier and manufacturer category, and TFG Brands is joining in the brand and retailer category. These organisations have committed to support OCA in our mission to unleash the positive impact of organic cotton, from farm to fashion, for the betterment of both people and the planet.
Organic cotton is gaining recognition as a key component in sustainable fashion and the textile industries, offering significant benefits in terms of reduced environmental impact and improved farmer livelihoods. We are at the forefront of this movement, and our newest Contributors are eager to add to OCA’s cause.
Why they chose OCA: a glimpse into their commitment to sustainability
OCA had the privilege of engaging with our new Contributors, exploring their views on the importance of organic cotton, their commitment to responsible raw material sourcing, their sustainability objectives, and their reasons for aligning with OCA’s mission.
“As a composite unit, OCA has motivated us towards more transparency in the supply chain,” stated Hasnein Husenali Narsinh, Managing Director from Milan Group. “Our goal is to achieve a sustainable approach with OCA to serve the value chain partners more responsibly. Together, we will share our knowledge to improve the organic cotton sector. We look forward to collaborating with OCA to create a supply chain that puts farmer welfare at the heart and provides traceability, as well as an increase in organic cotton supplies to the global market. We are also happy and proud to be a part of the OCA family.”
“Radheshyam Cottex understands Organic Cotton Accelerator holds the potential to increase farmers’ sustainable growth along the whole supply chain,” shared Dhaval V Chanv, Managing Director
M. Prabhakar Rao, Chairman – NSL Group stated, “We at NSL Textiles Limited (NTL), are committed to the goals of promoting sustainability and good agronomic practices through our Collaborative Cotton Farming (CCF) initiative. The CCF initiative provides a unique value proposition to all the participants in the Cotton value chain and is designed on the foundation of traceability and sustainability for serving as a trusted supply chain partner for national and global brands. As a part of Nuziveedu Seeds Limited (NSL) Group, NTL has collaborated with NSL to demonstrate the ‘Seed to Fabric’ model, through the supply of Seeds of improved Cotton varieties with premium fibre quality parameters as per market requirements especially in compliance with Organic and preferred Cotton standards. As a key contributor to Organic Cotton Accelerator (OCA), NSL Textiles will be at the forefront to work together with different value chain partners for alignment with a future that generates responsible Cotton for the world.”
“Home to British brands Phase Eight, Whistles, Hobbs, and Inside Story, the TFG London family is passionate about creating timeless pieces, made to last, with the aim to have as little impact on people and the planet as possible,” said Francesca Mangano Head of CSR & Sustainability at TFG Brands. “As we advance our transition to more responsible and lower- impact materials, we know how important it is to introduce organic cotton with integrity. We are proud to become Organic Cotton Accelerator Contributors, which will enable our brands to source direct-to-farm, prioritising farmer prosperity, alongside caring for the planet and achieving supply chain transparency and traceability. We are excited to partner with a dynamic community throughout the supply chain, all united to create and sustain a thriving organic cotton sector.”
