[LISTEN] Ubuntu Baby Carrier founder describes Woolies meeting and the outcome
Businesswoman Shannon Mclaughlin, who accused Woolworths of copying her baby carrier design and product, talks to Bruce Whitfield about her meeting with the retailer on Wednesday.
She says she met with the head buyer from Woolies and later that day the retailer apologised in a series of tweets.
Woolworths has announced that it will pull its range of baby carriers at the centre of copying allegations.
She spoke to Bruce Whitfield earlier this week about her accusations regarding the Ubuntu Baby Carrier.
She says the head buyer she met with was not intimidating.
It was a very calm conversation, where he said his side of the story, where I kind of held an interview style with him, just to get all the answers that I wanted.Shannon McLaughlin, Founder of Ubuntu Baby Carrier
She says she is pleased that Woolworths is withdrawing the carriers from stores and online, but she still has some reservations with the process and is hoping for more answers.
She was unable to provide details as she is still in talks with the retailer.
She adds that after she made the claim, there were other people that also came out and said the retailers has done similar things to them.
This is not just about one business, this is an opportunity for them to step up and show the public how they are not going to allow this to happen again.Shannon McLaughlin, Founder of Ubuntu Baby Carrier
