Thus say a link to a high quality supermarket such as Marks and Spenser’s or Tesco tends to result in a much higher standard for social and environmental safe guards than where origin is lost and there is no association with the supplier such as where sold through a market. All retailers targeting discerning buyers are rightly concerned about a back lash if standards fall short. Of all organisations these buyers have a material vested interest in high standards.
