We are restless in our aim to improve things for the better. We work closely with our suppliers to develop high quality and innovative products that are only available at M&S.
We operate rigorous quality management systems which have been developed with our suppliers. These operate on a precautionary principle and are supported by a range of on-site audits and product testing. Suppliers are required to meet a range of quality, safety, environmental and social standards. We also operate a system of public recalls when required.
We pride ourselves on developing innovative products. In any season, around 80% of our clothing, homeware and beauty products will be new.

M&S is committed to not using solid plastic microbeads in M&S own brand personal care products and working with our suppliers to remove them from branded products sold in M&S stores. No own-brand products are manufactured with such microbeads and all products, own-brand and branded, sold in M&S stores will be free from these microbeads by end of 2017.
