Grocery retailers are required by law to be compliant with the GSCOP.

 

The Groceries Supply Code of Practice (GSCOP) is a legislation introduced in 2009 to regulate the relationship between supermarkets and their suppliers. The Designated Retailers are required to comply with this Code and follow its guidelines to manage their relationship with suppliers. A company’s turnover in sales of groceries in the UK must exceed £1billion in order to be eligible to be classified as a designated retailer.

Recently an independent adjudicator has been appointed by the government to arbitrate, investigate and fine in case of breaches to the code. Retailers are also required by the Groceries Supply Code of Practice to train their staff and to appoint an in-house compliance officer.

We created a Groceries Supply Code of Practice (GSCOP) eLearning module to support retailers in being compliant with the Code and ensure that their staff is trained and that they do not risk fines. This module will enable anyone who works with or using the Groceries Supply Code of Practice (GSCOP) to apply the principles, fairly and compliantly. The course was designed for users who work in or with Buying Team at major UK supermarkets.
