Yes, QUIZ is a fast fashion brand.
QUIZ is a Scottish fast fashion brand, founded by Scottish-Pakistani businessman Tarak Ramzan.
QUIZ has around 300 shops, as well as international online partners in 20 countries. The company now has over 1400 employees, and in 2017 it was valued at £245 million.
On its Governance page, the brand states: “QUIZ believes that business can be a force for good, and that we have a unique opportunity to change how products are made, leading to a positive social impact.” However, it seems they take little action to implement this, providing only the minimum legal documentation around supply chain, anti-slavery policies on their website.
They do not openly document their suppliers, nor any aims to be more sustainable.
In 2020, QUIZ began investigations into their Leicester factories on the allegation that garment workers were being paid illegally low wages.
