The FDF works closely with the Groceries Code Adjudicator (GCA) to raise awareness on the rights of suppliers and obligations faced by the UK’s largest grocery retailers in commercial negotiations. We work with industry partners to deliver training for food and drink manufacturers and provide opportunities through FDF’s Supply Chain Directors’ Forum to engage directly with the GCA.

The FDF lobbies Government to deliver a fairer food supply chain by bringing additional powerful buyers into the remit of the GCA. We would like to see further targeted additions to the list of designated retailers including further grocery retailers and major grocery and food service wholesalers. This will help to ensure the GCA is adequately funded in the long term to undertake its essential work.
