Committee on Food Supply Chain Trading Practices
The Committee on Food Supply Chain Trading Practices, which operates as part of the Chamber of Commerce, is a self-regulatory body for commerce. The Committee promotes the implementation of good trading practices in the food supply chain. The Committee may issue opinions on compliance with the principles of good trading practices. In addition, it may address the shortcomings it has identified in the food supply chain by giving general recommendations. The Committee is a fast, agile and efficient actor, which engages in active stakeholder cooperation.
The Food Market Ombudsman works in collaboration with the Committee on Food Supply Chain Trading Practices. Provisions on cooperation between the Committee and the Ombudsman are laid down in the Food Market Act. According to the Act, before issuing a recommendation, the Food Market Ombudsman must request an opinion from the food supply chain’s self-regulating body.
