Retailers to attend responsible retailing workshop

BHETA is to facilitate a consultative retailer and supplier workshop on knife retail in a first move following its decision to co-ordinate a proactive ‘responsible retailing’ campaign.

John Lewis, Lakeland, Sainsbury’s, Asda, Dunelm, Steamer Trading and T K Maxx are among the multiple retailer brands set to attend the event on May 15 at BHETA’s headquarters in Vyse Street, Birmingham.  They will be joined by leading kitchen knife suppliers such as Taylor’s Eye Witness, Amefa, Fiskars, Meyer, Haus, Burton McCall, Kuhn Rikon and Robert Welch, several of whom attended BHETA’s initial meeting on the subject, which initiated the campaign.

BHETA’s Chief Operating Officer Will Jones will chair the meeting which is set to cover an agenda ranging from product design, packaging and merchandising to point of sale and retailer checkout procedures to consumer education and political lobbying.

Commenting on the workshop event, Will Jones said, “BHETA’s initial action after the March 25th supplier meeting was to write to all major retailers to ask for their input and engagement in support of best practice on this serious and complex issue.  I am very pleased that we have received such commitment from so many leading industry players and look forward to progressing the responsible retailing initiative with them.”
