This discussion paper focuses on the commitments that Dutch, German and UK
supermarkets made as part of the Behind the Barcodes campaign to conduct human
rights impact assessments (HRIAs). To understand whether supermarkets are
meaningfully implementing those commitments and to support learning, this paper
analyses the HRIAs that supermarkets have published in the past four years and
identifies best practice efforts and points of improvement. Oxfam also outlines key
recommendations for supermarkets and other food companies to improve HRIA processes
to ensure that the rights of people making our food are better protected and respected.
