A qualitative analysis on the strategies of large retailers is developed. Further a quantitative analysis on the level of policies and instruments of CSR in small and medium Italian food that are large suppliers of international retailers is produced. The analysis focused on the role of large retailers examining the effects of their international corporate social responsibility initiatives. Requirements for international supply chain members were also reviewed.
