Groceries Code Adjudication - give your views

18 February 2019

The Groceries Code Adjudicator has launched her annual survey.

The survey plays a vital role in the GCA’s work for the year ahead. It is an opportunity for groceries suppliers to tell Christine Tacon what Code issues they are facing and whether the major groceries retailers are treating them fairly and lawfully.

This year the survey – the sixth carried out by the GCA - includes Ocado and B&M, which were designated by the Competition and Markets Authority in November last year. Suppliers can complete it at: www.gov.uk/gca.

Christine Tacon said: “The annual survey plays a huge role in my work. It sheds strong light on the behaviour of the retailers and tells me how well they are complying with the Code. I use the information I receive to help identify top issues and to decide where to focus my discussions with the businesses I regulate.

“Thanks to the large numbers of suppliers who have taken part in previous years I have been able to delve deeper into specific issues, identifying particular challenges for individual retailers to work on.

“I need all sectors and sizes of groceries suppliers to complete my survey so please take the time to fill it in, and I welcome a cross-section of views from within suppliers. I am hoping as in past years to receive more than 1,000 replies from suppliers.”

The independent polling company YouGov runs the survey on behalf of the GCA so suppliers can be confident the information they provide is treated in complete confidence. YouGov collects and analyses the answers and will present the results at the GCA annual conference, which will be held on 24 June in Westminster. Registration for the conference is now open at: www.gov.uk/gca.

The survey is open until 23 April.
