Swiss Supermarkets lead sustainability rating

For all the complaining that goes on about the choice and quality of food in Migros and Coop, here is some good news for a change (at least to those who care I guess). In a study comparing the 130 largest retail companies in the world, Coop came out number one, followed by Migros and Marks&Spencer.

The factors which were taken into account were: Working conditions in the company and the supply chain, providing customers with information on product attributes, promotion of products with additional environmental or social
benefits, sustainable cultivation and production conditions in the supply chain as well as climate change.

A summary of the findings can be found here - and of course, Coop are already boasting about it in the newest TV-ad.

Awesome! This is one of the many reasons I love CH, along with the lack of GMOs <G>

Re: Swiss Supermarkets lead sustainability rating

How can anyone really complain about Migros & Coop, honestly?...Supermarkets are one of the really great things about the country...The variety may not be there for the items that are not popular among the indigenous Suisse but the quality is always among the best

And, of course, the variety for the products that are popular here is first rate

My biggest 'misses' remain good Mexican ingredients & cheddar cheese...But I've been finding that across the border in France, I can find those pretty easily

Creme D'Or cornettos, I love those from Migros

Re: Swiss Supermarkets lead sustainability rating

I'm also a big fan of both Coop and Migros. It's nice to see I'm not alone.
