How up to date are you on the Groceries Supply Code of Practice?
All Designated Retailers’ Buying teams have to be trained in GSCOP within a month of taking on the role and be refreshed ins GSCOP training every year. Christine Tacon the Grocery Code Adjudicator is very keen to ensure that Grocery supply companies are trained regularly on GSCOP too, when was the last time you were trained on GSCOP ?
At Blueprint we recently ran a GSCOP course for one of our clients and the benefits to the account management team were huge, from ensuring that the supply agreements comply to the power it gives the individual in negotiation.
Is it about time you refreshed your GSCOP training?
