Supply Chain Policy

Our suppliers have a vital part to play in ensuring our success.  The aims of this policy are to ensure we deliver high quality trusted products and services to our customers and members, to influence minimising negative impacts and adopt sustainable practices whilst promoting the co-operative business model.

By supplier we mean a first tier business that is in, or entering into, a contract with us for the supply of products and services. We want to work in collaboration with our suppliers as this effects how we are viewed.

This policy sets out the standards we expect our suppliers to meet and the questionnaire is to help us understand the supplier practice.  We'll consider these standards when we choose a supplier and we will work with our suppliers to point out areas for improvement and ask for changes to be made. If the supplier continues to not to meet these standards then at our discretion we may seek an alternative supplier.
