We are putting together some really interesting expert panels and talks, including a close look at our recent survey results and I encourage everyone to attend."

The Groceries Code Adjudicator (the GCA) is the independent regulator ensuring that regulated retailers treat their direct suppliers lawfully and fairly. The GCA encourages suppliers, trade associations and other representative bodies to provide him with information and evidence about how the large retailers are treating their direct suppliers. All information received is dealt with on a confidential basis and the GCA has a legal duty to preserve anonymity. In support of the GCA, we urge suppliers to undertake training in the code:


The annual conference is free to attend and we highly recommend that you register now to guarantee your place. The GCA will share information about how to set up meetings with the Adjudicator and Code Compliance Officers closer to the event.
