Levi’s manufactures jeans and other apparel in seven factories in Madagascar. At the Port of Toamasina, dock workers work in unsafe and dangerous conditions, and without minimum safety equipment, loading Levi’s clothing onto ships bound for the US, Europe and around the world.

Levi’s have dedicated themselves to “elevating the dignity of the people who work to bring [their] clothing to market”, and was the first multinational apparel company to establish a workplace code of conduct for their manufacturing suppliers.

But this commitment doesn’t extend to dock workers, seafarers and other transport workers in Levi’s supply chain.
