The UK’s Groceries Code Adjudicator, Mark White, has launched the regulator’s annual survey, inviting suppliers to share their experiences of how the sector is operating during highly challenging times.
The survey is an important opportunity for suppliers to tell the GCA about any Code issues they are facing and whether the retailers it regulates are treating them fairly and lawfully.
Since its initiation in 2014, the survey has played an important role in helping the GCA to achieve progress for suppliers, demonstrating where retailers’ efforts have improved Code compliance and identifying areas for them to make improvements.
Commenting Mark White said: “This survey will be immensely valuable in helping me identify the issues the groceries sector is facing as well as guiding my future work.
"What suppliers can tell me is particularly important as this is my first year as GCA and the sector is still working under the challenges of Covid and Brexit so I am asking them to be as frank as possible. Their answers can help their businesses.”
