How to become a GSCOP Ninja

According to Christine Tacon, the Groceries Code Adjudicator, almost a quarter of suppliers do not understand the Code, and almost 1 in 2 have had no training in how the Code can protect them (Source: GCA YouGov Annual Survey 2019).

Don’t Buy this Training and Take these Risks

This is a concern for a supplier because you:

  • Will not know if your Buyer is acting illegally.
  • Might be exposed without a supplier agreement.
  • You might be losing money responding to an incorrect Buyer’s request.
  • Supermarket Buyers are trained every year, by law.

What Can You Expect from this Course?

Once you have been you will be sent Part 0 – The Welcome email. This will explain what will happen and how you can make it stick. Then, each week, you will be sent a new part. In week 1 you will receive Part #1, In week 2 you will receive Part #2, etc.

We have purposefully made this training across 7 weeks because then you only need to do 30-minutes per week (10 minutes reading followed by an exercise), combined of some reading each week, followed by an exercise. To be honest, GSCOP can be a little dry as it is a piece of UK law. This way we ensure that we capture your full attention to make it stick.
