The article discusses the question mark put over the selection of Li & Fung USA's inclusion in this year's Top 15 largest suppliers of the U.S. The question mark in this year's ranking of the Top 15 largest suppliers revolves around Li & Fung USA. Li & Fung USA, the American marketing arm of a $6 billion Hong Kong-based sourcing company, claims $800 million in home fashions sales into the U.S. market last year. But others insist that number is inflated. Complicating the issue, Li & Fung USA sells to suppliers and retailers, providing some with private-label programs.
