The Supply of IF's

Now we have a new code for companies to pay (small) suppliers properly – that is according to the terms they agreed to in the first place.  This will be good news, if there is anything like a fixed contract between them. And especially:

– if the big supermarkets sign up to it

– if their suppliers have managed to negotiate a fair set of terms to begin with.

That’s quite a lot of ‘ifs’.
