The Grocery Code of Conduct Steering Committee recently completed stakeholder consultations, as part of the development of a grocery industry Code of Conduct. While this consultation was open to feedback from all stakeholders, the questions asked in the consultation document did not allow for thorough responses.


As such, FBC-ABC is undertaking a short survey of companies to identify a) the perceived usefulness of the Code of Conduct, as currently drafted, to Canada’s food and beverage manufacturers; and b) any shortcomings and suggested changes to the current draft, which could not be explained in detail during the stakeholder consultations.
