The Week In Review: Will Loblaw Let Thoughts of Bangladesh Fade Away?

In the aftermath of the deadly Bangladesh factory collapse, Loblaw has been admirably vocal about its plans to compensate victims' families and to make checking the structural integrity of factory buildings part of its future audits of suppliers. But the interesting part of this story will come in a few months, once the news cycle has moved on from the disaster in Dakha. Will Loblaw have the fortitude to get out there and remind us all of the disturbing incident in order to update us on the details of its follow-through? Or will it be content to let its customers' thoughts of the collapse quietly fade away, as they are bound to do?

This may be the first time that Joe Fresh has been caught up in a disaster of this scale, but if they don't change the way they do business in Bangladesh, it won't be the last. The brand has to explain what they're doing to ensure that the workers making their clothes aren't walking into a potential deathtrap each morning.
