The German EHI Retail Institute will explain their project to introduce a helpline to farm and packhouse workers in Spain in order to meet new German legal requirements for supply chain due diligence (LkSG). The newly founded appellando Alliance is supported by eight retailers and many of their Spanish suppliers.

ALDI Nord, ALDI SOUTH Group, Edeka, Kaufland, Lidl, Markant, Migros and Rewe Group contributed in eight multi-stakeholder working groups. The first outcome of this collaborate work will be shared at the one-hour bi-lingual Spanish-English event.
