Italian fashion giant Benetton Group is looking to increase its use of India as a sourcing destination, media reports reported chairman Luciano Benetton as saying.

Benetton said through an interpreter that the company was looking at sourcing garments from southern India as well as northern India, which it already uses as a sourcing destination.

The company wants to double its Southeast Asian in the next three years, reports say, and plans to use India as a production base for the market.
