Put your money where your mouth is – Investing in Sustainable Regional Food Systems and Communities through Public Procurement

The public procurement of food is more than just putting a meal on a plate, it impacts our whole society- from the way we use our land, seas and support our local economies; to how we nourish those that need it most; and our ability to achieve our climate change commitments. How we use the public purse to buy food ultimately says a great deal about our values as a society.

Jointly hosted by Sustainable Food Places and Food For Life Scotland, this ONLINE event aims to look at public procurement as an integrated system with the power to not only build strong and resilient local food systems but also invest in the people that work and live in those regions.
