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.

CPA were recommended to us back in 2012 after a challenging recruitment project came our way. Not only were they able to source us a talented Innovation Manager in a difficult location, this project was brought to a successful close within the timeframes we needed. Since then, CPA have sourced three new members for our team and they are all still happily with us. They clearly have expertise knowledge of the NPD market and bring a professional and focused approach to the most challenging of recruitment briefs.
