German supermarkets sign voluntary commitment to fair supply chains

Following a campaign on fair supply chains led by Gerd Müller, the German Minister for Economic Cooperation and Development, big German supermarket franchises such as Aldi, Rewe, and Edeka signed a voluntary commitment to fair pricing for mangos, coffee, and bananas. The franchises committed to this initiative at Berlin's 'Green Week', an international exhibition of food, agriculture, and gardening industries from January 17- 26, 2020.

Müller has criticized Germany's cheap food prices, among the lowest in Europe due to fierce competition,  and advocates for a new German law on fair and sustainable supply chains.
