(Drinks Media Wire). In response to today’s announcement by Consumer minister Kevin Brennan that he has accepted the Competition Commission’s recommendation for a body to enforce the Groceries Supply Code of Practice (GSCOP), Melanie Leech, Director General of the Food and Drink Federation says:
“We support the Government’s decision to create a new body to oversee the Groceries Supply Code of Practice, which we believe will be of particular help for smaller businesses in the food chain. We look forward to working with the Government to ensure this new organisation operates as an effective, low cost monitoring and enforcement body.”
