2011 Supermarket Comparison E-mail
 

Supermarkets wield a huge amount of influence over growers, produce traders and consumers, including in issues of pesticide use. PAN UK is often asked ‘which UK supermarkets are the best on pesticides’? Our first comparison, published in 2009, triggered considerable interest by retailers and ethical investment trackers. The 2009, comparison was based on the information published by the supermarkets themselves. For this updated comparison, we also asked the supermarkets to fill in a questionnaire and offered them the opportunity to talk us through their policies. We also expanded on the earlier version by assessing supermarkets performance in three new areas: Pollinator friendly practices, phasing out highly hazardous pesticides and support to help farmers reduce pesticide use.

 

PAN UK believes it is important to monitor the policies and performance of retailers on pesticide issues, in order to support and encourage positive change and to let consumers and investors know which are the poor performers. In 2009 we conducted a study comparing the 10 main supermarkets operating in the UK on their policies, plans and actions on a range of pesticide issues important to concerned consumers. Two years on, we felt it was necessary to revisit our comparison, looking for progress.
