    Comment: it must be noted that some retailers are acting responsibly and have been for some years with their supplier sustainability models supporting UK agriculture. on the other hand some retailers that I see have signed up to your charter demonstrate very little regard to its principles. in the event of needing to show credible CSR some retailers talk in riddles but in practice business is entirely driven by below cost of production pricing.
