Asos, Next and  Zalando have pulled Boohoo products from their websites following allegations of modern slavery at a warehouse in Leicester, Retail Week can reveal.

Asos is understood to have temporarily suspended sales of Boohoo’s brands including Boohoo, PrettyLittleThing, Nasty Gal and BoohooMan, pending the outcome of the retailer’s investigation into the allegations.

Zalando, often referred to as the German Asos, has also stopped selling Boohoo products via its platform indefinitely.

The etailer said it would only consider stocking Boohoo products again “once all corrective actions have been satisfactorily addressed” by the business.
