Is Sourcing in China Safe? [China Business Success Stories]
Whether you source domestically or offshore, always perform due diligence. It is naive to assume that every supplier in the world interprets quality standards the same way; that every country, company and person handles disputes the same way; or that quality can be considered a given. It is also naïve to assume that, just because it is in the U.S., a domestic source will meet your quality standards.
The savings from low wages can pale in comparison to the costs of a recall. The loss of customer trust can knock a company out completely. Those statements are true regardless of whether you source domestically, in China or anywhere else in the world.
