GCA Finds The Co-op Breached GSCOP


The GCA has found the supermarket group had breached the Groceries Supply Code of Practice (GSCOP) on two counts. The retailer failed to provide reasonable notice to suppliers of decisions to de-list products and varied supply agreements unilaterally and without reasonable notice in the way it applied two specific charges. The Co-op Group has been ordered to introduce “major changes to its governance, systems and processes”  [more]

  • Problem identified, analysed and corrected…
  • …with the promise of post-correction monitoring…
  • …making it easier for suppliers to partner with the Co-op.
  • A valued and important route to consumer…
  • (coupled with a willingness by supplier-partners to report any future breach…
  • …for the benefit of all stakeholders)
