Sample text

The Commission’s proposals, therefore, reinforced the principle of proportionality as a legislative procedure which distinguished between ‘on the one hand, matters which by their nature must continue to be the subject of legislation and, on the other hand, those whose characteristics are such that they do not need to be regulated’. Most importantly, for the first time the Commission actually defined the limited basis upon which such legislation on foodstuffs could be justified, thereby defining the responsibilities of the Community’s regulatory food system as a whole: Community foodstuff legislation must ensure that there is a high level of public health protection and that the consumer is accurately and adequately informed as to the nature, characteristics and, where appropriate, the origin of foodstuffs placed on the market.

Vertical restraints are now more subtly applied, not just associated with aspects of exclusive supply, refusal to stock or delisting, minimum supply levels or sunk facility requirements on suppliers. Now, the development of more specific agreements and contracts (for instance concerning specific quality parameters) means that the boundary between vertical intervention and vertical integration has become much more blurred. For regulatory authorities, this means that even if there is the political will to investigate vertical restraints as a key aspect of retail power (so far, despite EU concern, the new British government has been reluctant), then it is going to be very important to adopt a methodology which takes into account all the ways in which retailers and manufacturers intervene in each other’s behaviour, and not just in the more formal vertical restraints.

Power along supply chains and the increasing dominance of retailers in negotiating quality control in contracts and agreements, becomes a major feature in maintaining competitive space, between themselves and with food producers and processors (see Hughes 1996; Doel 1996). The role of supply chains in regulation is developed further in Chapter 6. The British system of supply chain management is generally viewed as more ‘retailer led’ (Doel 1996; Hughes 1996) than that of the USA, for example. The growth of retailer own-label, reaching 50 per cent of the ‘packaged’ grocery market in the UK by 1995, and the weaker market position of manufacturers compared to their US counterparts means that: The composite character of the manufacturer interface is one of dynamic complexity … There is a widespread consensus that those own-label supply networks created by proactive retailers and characterised by intensive interaction are assuming progressively greater quantitative and strategic significance.
