Ahold Scandal Puts Focus on Corporate Accountability

While the source of the accusations is an unsubstantiated anonymous letter, Dutch regulators are investigating the claims.

While Ahold may not be found guilty of this type of wrongdoing, it is well known that large big-box retailers often cut corners in developing countries and transitional economies.

ITDP has compiled dossiers on some of the worst offenders, which are available in our Information Center:

Auchan (20K)
Carrefour (22K)
Metro (16K)
Tesco (20K)
