Industry Working Groups

Our working groups bring experts together to tackle industry-wide challenges. Members represent the total food and grocery supply chain from farm to fork. We share their work widely to make the biggest possible difference in everything from nutrition and sustainability to skills and employment.

Our industry groups

  • Feeding Britain's Future

    This group was established to identify the role the food and grocery industry could play in supporting young people looking for work and has been helping do just that for over four years.

  • Working on Waste "WOW"

    This group delivers campaigns that engage industry employees as consumers, inspiring and educating to create lasting behaviour change.

  • Industry Nutrition Strategy Group

    For more than a decade, the Industry Nutrition Strategy Group (INSG) has been identifying ways to encourage healthy eating for consumers throughout the UK.

  • Industry Sustainability Group

    The Industry Sustainability Group (ISG) shares knowledge and creates new ways of working to support food and grocery companies in tackling environmental and social challenges for the benefit of the public.

  • Policy Issues Council (PIC)

    The Policy Issues Council is a forum of chief executives and chairmen from farming, manufacturing, retail, wholesaling and foodservice. It drives improvement by addressing shared challenges and opportunities in nutrition, sustainability, skills and other areas.

  • Technical Leadership Forum

    The Technical Leadership Forum (TLF) consists of the technical director peer group from major retailers and own-brand manufacturers. The forum's members comes together to ensure the safety and provenance of the food we eat.

  • ECR UK Industry Working Groups

    ECR UK is an IGD-led forum that identifies opportunities for the industry’s supply chain teams to bring benefit to the public through collaboration. IGD's role at the heart of the food and grocery industry means we are well-positioned to foster positive change.

You can access the learnings and best practice on our website in the form of:

  • Online toolkits
  • Guidelines
  • Best practice case studies
  • Online resources and links to other sites

While our groups bring together people from different companies across the food and grocery supply chain, we make sure they operate within the limits of our competition law compliance policy.
