The Groceries Supply Code of Practice (GSCOP) was implemented by the UK Government to encourage major UK supermarkets to treat suppliers fairly. The aim of this course is to understand it and keep up-to-date with its implications and how these can make a difference in your Retailer relationships. The workshop is run by ex-senior managers from one of the ‘Big 4’ Retailers who have over 50 years retailing experience between them.

Course objectives:


  • To understand what GSCOP is, why it was set up, and its key elements
  • To know how GSCOP affects you and your role
  • To instil confidence on how to use GSCOP/the GCA day to day
  • Using GSCOP in a practical & pragmatic way, without it impacting Retailer relationships
  • To have the knowledge to better safeguard your business from unfair dealing

 Who should attend?

 

  • Commercial and Sales Directors
  • Key Account Managers
  • Key finance colleagues who work directly with Retailers
  • All direct suppliers, whether of branded, private label or fresh products, irrespective of size
