One of the conditions of LOFA membership is that members must adhere to a code of conduct, part of which is compliance with all current legislation; it is this culture of propriety that the retailer and customer buy into when they source product from LOFA members. LOFAssured is a distinguishing factor setting LOFA products apart from other non-compliant suppliers. LOFA appointed FIRA (Furniture Industry Research Association) and entered into a Primary Authority Partnership with HertfordshireTrading Standards to aid the members in their quest for full compliance.
WHAT IS LOFA?
The Leisure and Outdoor Furniture Association (LOFA) is a UK trade association representing the interests of its members who are some of the leading manufacturers and distributors of quality garden furniture and barbecues in the world.
LOFA’s primary aim, as a professional trade association, is to work with its members to develop good working practices, a respect for the environment and to provide consumers with up-to-date information on lifestyle products for the garden.
We organise an annual trade exhibition for our members, SOLEX , where the leading garden leisure products are launched.
LOFA was formed 50 years ago in 1967, and we celebrated that recently !
