Michael Medline Grocery Board Foundation

Michael Medline, president and CEO of Empire Company Limited says relationships between supermarkets and food producers are the most frayed he’s seen in his decades in retail in an interview with The Financial Post, citing that's why he and others in the industry are pushing for a grocery code of conduct.

Medline says in the story that he’s confident that the industry can come up with a meaningful proposal by the end-of-the-year deadline set by the federal, provincial and agriculture and agri-food ministers, known as the FPT.

The FPT has hired a third-party facilitator to help the industry trade associations and their partners figure out how to come to an agreement on a code of conduct.
