Fairness in the food supply chain


With households facing the highest levels of food price inflation since the 1970s, the EFRA Committee is looking at issues throughout the food supply chain from ‘farm to fork’. We are investigating how profitability and risks are shared through the food supply chain and the existing government system of monitoring and regulation of these.
