Oxfam releases 3rd scoring of US and 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 that, despite some progress in recent years, supermarkets are not doing enough to combat human suffering in global supply chains. Supermarkets scored lowest on their steps to protect women’s rights. In the context of the Covid-19 pandemic, it is even more important for companies to prioritise human rights at the core of their business practice.
The supermarket scorecard, which is in its third 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 third scorecard is below. Further analysis and global reports on both scorecards are also available below. The second scorecard can be found here.
