Research Update – UK Supermarkets! by The Good Shopping Guide | Jan 4, 2016 | Ethical Shopping Blog | 0 comments This morning we released our latest research on UK Supermarkets. Supermarkets are of course very controversial, and come with a complex array of issues. There’s also a real and growing argument about possibly avoiding them altogether, instead shopping at local independent markets or buying food directly from farmers. With all that said, there’s no doubt that supermarkets hold a central place in the current retail economy and have a great deal of power – over producers, individuals, and the way food is farmed and transported. If you find yourself going to a supermarket, just remember that some are better than others… In our research, Waitrose ranks top with an Ethical Company Index of 75. They are followed by Budgens, Marks and Spencer, and Sainsbury’s. Co-op, to the surprise of some, has not made it into the top ethical brands column. Aldi, Iceland, ASDA, Tesco all rank bottom.
