British fashion brand Jaeger plans to bring 10 per cent of its production back to the UK as part of a five-year strategy to turn around the company.

The retailer, which was founded in 1884, is the latest high profile name to announce it intends to shift manufacturing to the UK.

The company told SM: “Along with the UK, Jaeger will also look to source products from other countries such as Turkey, Italy and Portugal which will help improve quality and the speed at which clothing becomes available to the customer.”

A recent survey found 67 per cent of British companies were considering moving production back to the UK or Europe.

Jaeger was acquired by the Better Capital investment group, which specialises in restructuring businesses, in April 2012.
