Food and Grocery Code of Conduct training

Get to know the Food and Grocery Code of Conduct

The Food and Grocery Code of Conduct (the Code) introduces a regime for fair dealing between suppliers and signatory retailers.

The AFGC and NextGen have developed a Code training program for suppliers to help their understanding of Code obligations, legal requirements and how to effectively use the Code in price negotiations.


What does the Code training cover?

The training covers:

  • Code obligations, their intent and application i.e. good faith, waste and shrinkage, deductions, promotions, delisting and range review and many other elements of the day-to-day trading relationship
  • How to use the code in your day-to-day engagement with supermarket retailers
  • Real-world case studies set against practical insight


At the conclusion of the program, delegates will complete an online assessment, and if successful will be awarded the AFGC Code of Conduct certificate. This accreditation compliments the typical Competition and Consumer law training suppliers undertake.

Successfully integrating the Code across all customer facing business functions will ensure its success within your organisation. Training should be conducted once every two years across the following roles:

  • Commercial and accounts
  • Supply chain
  • Marketing
  • Category and insights
  • Legal
