Oxfam releases 2nd scoring of US & European supermarkets’ global food supply chains

Oxfam has assessed 16 large supermarkets across the US and Europe on their policies and practices in their food supply chains. The supermarkets were assessed on publicly disclosed policies and practices in four key areas: supply chain transparency; conditions for workers; conditions for small-scale farmers; and tackling discrimination against women. The scores reveal overall the supermarkets are making slow progress to end human suffering in global supply chains, with particularly low scores in the theme on women. 

The supermarket scorecard, which is in its second year, is part of Oxfam’s global #behindthebarcodes campaign to improve the lives of the millions of people around the world producing food for supermarkets who are trapped in poverty and face brutal working conditions.

The second scorecard is below. Further analysis and global reports on both scorecards are available below, along with separate reports on Dutch, German, UK & US supermarkets.
