GCA reaches out to small suppliers

The Groceries Code Adjudicator (GCA), Christine Tacon, has launched the seventh annual survey, which provides suppliers with the opportunity to express any Groceries Supply Code of Practice issues. The survey has enabled Christine, as the UK’s first GCA, to achieve progress for suppliers, demonstrate where retailer efforts have improved Code compliance and identify areas for improvement. The day the survey was released marked 10 years since the Code came into force. 

Christine says,“I am particularly keen for micro and small suppliers to take part as I would like to have more information about the Code issues they face. I am very grateful to Speciality Food for promoting the survey and helping me raise awareness among this important group of suppliers. Last year, around 300 micro and small suppliers responded to the survey and of those, 22% of small suppliers and 30% of micro suppliers said they were unaware of my role, compared to only 9% of large suppliers.’

Suppliers can complete the survey at yougov.com/GCA, and it closes on 29th March 2020.
