Abstract

The agrofood sector, and the fashion, textiles and footwear sector have been working towards the drafting and implementation of a code of conduct with possibilities for dispute resolution in order to promote fair trade practices. Steering groups from within each of these two sectors started a pilot in order to achieve this. For the 2 years that these pilots were running, the two steering groups did not receive any complaints about unfair trade practices. Both steering groups emphasised that they determined that a code of conduct does have an edifying effect. The general perception is that the code of conduct made businesses more aware of fair trade and unfair trade practices. The steering group from the agrofood sector, although not unanimously, is sympathetic towards a continuation of the pilot which is in contrast with the steering group from the fashion, textile and footwear sector. This steering group supports putting the current pilot on hold and to make it available on demand if the branch organisations advise its usage. Both steering groups do not support extra legislation in this area.
