Farmers urged to fill in groceries supply chain survey


Maelgwyn Davies

Welsh farmers are being encouraged to take part in a survey to give the Groceries Code Adjudicator (GCA) a fuller picture of the relationship between retailers and their direct suppliers and the impact of the Groceries Supply Code of Practice.

Farmers' Union of Wales arable, horticulture and cropping committee chairman Maelgwyn Davies said the survey is an ideal opportunity to influence the GCA in tackling the issues that hamper businesses and lead to inefficiencies in the supply chain.

"The FUW fully supported the setting up of the Groceries Supply Code of Practice and with the survey being completely anonymous suppliers can speak frankly about what they think needs to change in the UK groceries supply sector.

"The results of the research will be used to inform the adjudicator's current and future work programme and to meet reporting commitments."
