Sourcery invites 10 Denim Mills to join as provisional partners with potential stock options through their Direct-to-Grower™ Membership

Sourcery announced the expansion of its Provisional Partnership Programme, which has proven successful in India and Pakistan, inviting up to ten front-runner and visionary denim mills, manufacturers and verticals from Pakistan, Bangladesh, Vietnam, Türkiye, and Italy as a Provisional Direct-to-Grower™ Manufacturer Partner. By adopting and taking the Direct-to-Grower approach, Provisional Partners will be able to “test-drive” Sourcery, buying cotton fibre directly from growers and selling denim yarn and fabric to other Direct-to-Grower™ Partners, without any upfront membership fee. They will also be among the first mills to have the opportunity to participate in Sourcery’s forthcoming stock option subscription programme that will be available to all its member Partners—allowing the sector itself to take ownership in and lead the future of trade as a global cooperative committed to transforming trade for good.

The Provisional Partnership Programme was initiated to drive stronger demand in the market with Direct-to-Grower™ Partners downstream into the entire cotton value chain. This model has been proven successful in India, and Pakistan, where several spinning mills, manufacturers and verticals have been pre-qualified to join the Direct-to-Grower™ Programme as Provisional Partners. Recent Provisional Partners include leading spinning mills such as Shivatex, Armstrong India, Unitech Spinner, Nahar Spinning, Ken Enterprises, Ramco Group and GTN Textiles and several who continue with the application and onboarding process. Together, these Provisional Manufacturer Partners have begun their journey to transform trade for good. Despite lower than usual fibre demand, they remain committed to directing more demand toward Sourcery Grower Partners because of the added transparency, traceability, and trust that comes with buying through the Sourcery Partner network.

Provisional Partners can immediately engage, collaborate, and procure fibre and sell yarn, fabric and finished goods in a more transparent, fair, and efficient way and can benefit from Sourcery’s full suite of Direct-to-Grower Solutions. As a trade intermediary and facilitator driving demand and securing supply on behalf of its Partners, Sourcery never charges a commission fee on fibre, yarn, or fabric transactions. This not only means substantial potential cost savings for these Partners compared with traditional buying and sales approaches, but it also means being able to invest more in advancing commercial and environmental excellence in their own operations and support the continued advancement of other Grower and Manufacturer Partners needed to transform trade for good. Together, Partners can collaborate to confidently offer and sell products with the quality, integrity, traceability and verified impact at the farm level that is required by brands and retailers to ensure compliance to new international trade and ‘greenwashing’ legislation in the United States, Europe, and the United Kingdom.

“The denim industry is often the first to adopt new fibres, processes, technology than other textile categories who tend to be less forward thinking and responsive.,” said Crispin Argento, Global Managing Director of Sourcery. By specifically inviting the denim community to join not just as future members, but to also take ownership in Sourcery is very much a part of our approach to transforming the “impact paradigm” whereby growers, traders, mills, and brands can better collaborate, define, and now own the future of sustainable cotton and transparent trade.” 

Sourcery will be attending Kingpins 2024 in Amsterdam to promote its Provisional Partnership Programme for the denim industry. You can apply here or schedule a meeting at Kingpins with Crispin Argento via connect@thesourcery.io.
