This sub-metric is used to evaluate the metric : ""5.3 Organic and sustainable products""
With this metric, we aim to provide insight into and compare the actions and policies of the main distributors in Spain regarding the distribution and promotion of organic products and the level of pesticide residues and sustainable origin of their fruit and vegetables.
The organic products business is worth 1,000 million euros in Spain, with year-on-year growth of 25%, thanks mainly to fruit, vegetables, vegetable drinks and eggs.
Lidl is the chain with the best sales success in organic products with the highest share of the organic market, specifically 16.5 points, according to 2018 data from the consultancy firm Kantar Worldpanel. It is followed by Carrefour (14.7 points) and Aldi (12.4 points).
We will "assign a" "YES" "to this question if:
- The company declares to develop policies or initiatives to help its local suppliers to migrate towards an ecological production model or to improve the one they already have.
An example of good practice in this regard are the agreements signed by Carrefour with its suppliers in 2019 for collaboration from production to
long-term guaranteeing prices, or the commitments of this company to accompany local producers in their transition to
the farm changes needed to address the production of organic products
