Supply of goods and services: Groceries Code Adjudicator issues report on Tesco investigation
The Groceries Code Adjudicator (GCA) published her report on the investigation into Tesco plc, which was launched following the Tesco announcement on its profit over-statement and the receipt of information from the retailer and the sector.
She has found that Tesco breached the Groceries Supply Code of Practice and Tesco must introduce significant changes to practices and systems.
Her investigation covered the period from 25 June 2013 to 5 February 2015 and found that Tesco often unreasonably delayed payments to suppliers during that time. The report sets out three key issues of concern: Tesco made unilateral deductions from suppliers; the length of time taken to pay money due to suppliers and in some cases an intentional delay in paying suppliers.
The GCA has made five key recommendations and Tesco has four weeks to say how it plans to implement those recommendations.

The ODR platform will be an interactive website, which can be accessed free of charge in all the official languages of the EU (art 5(2) of the Regulation) and is specifically designed to help consumers who have bought goods or services online and subsequently have a problem with that online purchase. It allows consumers to submit their contractual dispute and conduct the alternative dispute resolution procedure online .
