A European Commission proposal to ban unfair trading practices (UTPs) in the food supply chain has been welcomed by numerous groups.
It will prohibit the ‘more damaging’ UTPs to ensure fairer treatment for small and medium sized food and farming businesses.
Nine groups said the move has the potential to create a minimum harmonisation at EU level without endangering existing systems in some Member States.
However, UEAPME, IFOAM EU, FoodDrinkEurope, Fair Trade Advocacy Office, EFFAT, Copa and Cogeca, CLITRAVI, CEJA and AIM expressed concern with its limited scope as it covers only SME suppliers.
