Procurement and supply in retail often makes the headlines - and not always for the right reasons.

Working conditions for staff in garment and electronics factories and the ‘bullying’ of supermarket suppliers are among the criticisms often levelled at this sector. However, supply chains of some retail companies are among the best in the world and fierce market competition means innovation, creativity and tight turnaround times are key.

Whether you work in the sector or not, we want to hear your views so please take part in our anonymous two-minute survey about the sector.
