Survey: do independent wine retailers need a suppliers’ code of practice?


Harpers Wine & Spirit has opened a consultation with independent wine merchants to find out if there should be a code of practice for suppliers, and if so, what it should cover.

At Harpers inaugural Indies’ Supplier debate, held on September 12 at London’s Soho Hotel,  merchants and suppliers agreed that Harpers, as an independent voice, should consult its database of merchants to see if the appetite exists to create a code of practice.

Please click here [www.surveymonkey.com/s/indiessupplier] to fill in the survey.

Questions cover whether suppliers should make their channel strategies public, or give details of where wines are available on request and whether they need to inform retailers when wines change distribution channels.

Please tick agree or disagree next to each of the elements of the proposed code and if there are other areas you would like to see included in any code, then please add them in the comments field at the end of the questionnaire.

We will compile all the replies we receive from merchants across the country and present the results back to the trade for further discussions on how to take the issue forward.
