NFU Review of Grocery Retailer CSR Policies



The NFU have published the findings of a major investigation into the corporate social responsibility (CSR) policies of the 10 largest UK supermarket chains.



The report, which for the first time looks at how retail CSR programmes are impacting on UK farmers and growers, reveals that most of the major chains have sourcing policies that promote British produce while several retailers have also pledged to ramp up UK sourcing. However, it also highlights areas where the big names could develop their commitments to the benefit of both the retailer and the farmer.



NFU director of corporate affairs Tom Hind said many retailers were starting to highlight British agriculture and horticulture as key features of their CSR programmes.
