Hope For Suppliers With Groceries Code Adjudicator Bill

11 May

News that third parties will be able to take complaints from suppliers to the newly created Groceries Code Adjudicator
will bring huge relief to Welsh farmers and growers supplying into the large retailers, said NFU Cymru today.

The NFU have been campaigning for over a decade and today’s news means that trade associations, such as NFU Cymru,
should be able to protect farmers and growers who, for too long, have been subjected to unfair practices by the major supermarkets.

The Bill will begin its passage through Parliament in the coming weeks and NFU Cymru will be examining the fine text of
the Bill to ensure the adjudicator’s powers are fit for purpose.

For once some good news for farmers and growers in what are increasingly difficult times. I’m sure many of our Best Of Welsh & Borders producers and growers will appreciate the work the NFU have put into this BIll.
