Given the variety and volume of products stocked and sold by Banner, the high number of suppliers and the array of customers across the UK, it is no surprise that Supply Chain forms a most significant part of our economic, social and environmental footprint. Ensuring the right level of management is vitally important with sustainable and ethical procurement forming a fundamental part of that process. Banner is committed to ensuring a robust and diverse supply base with whom we work collaboratively to bring about innovation in product, packaging and delivery on an ongoing basis.
Given the innumerable list of challenges and demands within the strands of supply chain, the agility and adaptiveness of our colleagues is an absolute must. That said, it is imperative our relationships and buying decisions are underpinned by our commitment to Responsible Procurement. The themes within our Supply Chain pillar will support this over the coming years. We are ensuring a wider and wider range of sustainable products, improved packaging and enhanced supplier compliance through audits and regular reviews to ensure adherence to our Code of Conduct.
