Our Vision

To humanise the supply chain.

For those willing to make a difference every day, KNO guarantees a safe-for-all supply chain by connecting each of us with one worker, one factory, one human at a time.

Our Mission

To have real-time connection and relationship with 10,000,000 factory workers globally

Our Story

Our Founder and CEO Marianne started out as a regular shopper in London, when she realised she knew nothing about the people who made what she was buying. She travelled to China and worked in a factory, built trust with workers and managers, and today our team is focused on helping build trust alongside some of the biggest brands in the world.












Based on 1 factory

with 361 workers

250 interactions per worker
in 2 minutes per day
in just 5 weeks


Our global problem

Workers don't have a voice

If people have an issue, there is no way for workers to voice it, which means issues can't be  heard.

Factories are  under pressure

High labour turnover, workers and brands are demanding improved conditions and quality of life.

Brands are in the dark

Scandals can happen at any time, and the industry is reliant on audit which gives limited information.

How it works
