LIVA Accredited Partner Forum is a consortium of world class Spinners, Weavers, Knitters and Processors committed towards quality and innovations using fibres from Birla Cellulose. The community works together to meet the global standards, scale and capabilities thereby placing India on the global map. It is the first one-stop shop of India to tackle the problems faced by the industry as well as the environment. This worthy initiative finally answers the age-old issues of having manufacturing units at different places faced during the textile making process which gives rise to lack of traceability of products, manufacturing non- sustainable products, and maintaining quality of the textiles that are produced.
We also believe that partnering with like-minded enterprises will give us the opportunity to learn something new along with spreading our message of using sustainable products. Our dedicated team of experts, through LAPF calls out to manufacturers who share the same ideology to be a part of the consortium to make a difference to people’s lives as well as the environment.
