SFDF Event

SFDF's Groceries Supply Code of Practice event


The Scottish Food and Drink Federation (SFDF) has organised a special event in Edinburgh on 9 December at which the Groceries Code Adjudicator (GCA), Christine Tacon, will be outlining what her new role will mean for Scottish food and drink producers.

The GCA, has been appointed to oversee the Groceries Code which applies to the largest supermarkets and governs their relationships with direct suppliers.

Ms Tacon will be the guest speaker at the free event which is open to all Scottish food and drink producers including companies which are not SFDF members.

The event will enable producers to hear more about the GCA's role which has been created to ensure supermarkets treat their suppliers fairly and lawfully and is funded by a levy on supermarkets with turnovers exceeding £1billion.
