24 January 2017
The Supply Chain Initiative (SCI) marked further progress in promoting good trading practices in its third annual report presented at an event today sponsored by MEPs Dita Charanzová and Ivan Štefanec.
This Annual Report provides an overview of progress and achievements in the Supply Chain Initiative since its launch in September 2013.
The report highlights progress in company registration and actions undertaken by the Governance Group in providing assistance to companies and national associations and raising awareness. It also presents the results of the last annual survey of registered companies as well as the action plan developed by the Governance Group for 2017.
On 30 September, the SCI governance group held a workshop that brought together 22 national representatives of the food chain (farmers, industry and retail), from eight countries: five from SCI-inspired dialogue platforms (Belgium, Czech Republic and Finland, Germany, and the Netherlands) and, three with regulatory schemes (France, Italy, Spain).
The SCI Annual Event took place on 27 January 2016 on the occasion of the publication of the 2nd Annual Report. It gathered around 100 participants representing registered companies, national and European associations and EU officials, mainly from the European Commission and the Parliament.
