Finland - Campaign for transparency in Lidl supply chains - December 31, 2015

The main grocery trade groups, NGO's, the Ministry of Employment and the Economy and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs signed a memorandum on 15 August 2015 setting out the lines on how to follow the UN principles concerning the grocery trade supply chain. The company Lidl joined the discussions initially but then pulled out and did not sign the memorandum. At the moment, Lidl is the only national grocery store chain that refuses to provide information on its subcontractors. Therefore, the industry watchdog Finnwatch has initiated a campaign to put pressure on Lidl to provide consumers with information on its supply chain.
