Supermarkets superpowers ? : LUSENET : Ethical Consumerism - UK : One Thread

I am a student at Harper Adams agricultural college and have to write a paper on the effects of big retailing chaines on its wider environment (producers, distributors, consumers, local retailers...) I would like to concentrate on the effects big supermarkets have on producers in the third world. Does anyone know where I could find information on this subject ?

You might want to try contacting an +Ontario Public Interest Research Group;. OPIRGs are found on various university campuses throughout Ontario, Canada. Similar groups exist in the different provinces. A while ago, one of the PIRGs came out with a piece on something similar to what you're working on. However, I saw it only briefly so cannot elaborate or help out; sorry!

I hope this information is not getting to you too late. Good luck, Natalie
