Supermarkets have great influence on our food system. The multi-yeaer research programme, Superlist, compares the efforts supermarkets make on four themes: health, sustainability, human rights and animal welfare. For each Superlist research we work together with civil society organisations that are active on the theme. In Belgium, Superlist started with the theme sustainability. Superlist Environment was published in 2022 in collaboration with partners Rikolto, Test Aankoop, Bond Beter Leefmilieu, FoodWIN, BOS+, Canopea and Ecoconso. The five largest Belgian supermarkets were researched in this Superlist: Aldi, Carrefour, Colruyt, Delhaize and Lidl.
The findings of this research were explained in National Flemish and Wallonian newspapers, such as De Morgen and Le Soir. After this Superlist's publication, partner Rikolto organised a Super Dialogue where we presented the key findings from this research and discuss the topic with key stakeholders.
