Food procurement in Scotland is changing – share, learn and collaborate for the future
Food procurement in Scotland is changing – not only to become more agile in the face of national and global change, but also to fulfil our ambitions to use the public purse to deliver greater public and environmental good. We also need to consider how public food procurement can deliver for the aspirations contained in the Good Food Nation Bill.
There are already some inspiring examples of how local authorities and food partnerships are modernising the procurement system, with many others also looking to change how they buy and supply food. In this online session we will look at some of the emerging good practice in Scotland and explore how we can ensure we are learning from each other, avoiding duplicating work and not miss opportunities for collaboration. This is an opportunity to learn, share and build connections for the future.
The meeting is open to anyone working on the procurement of food in local authorities in Scotland, including:
Local Authority Catering Leads
Local Authority Procurement Teams
Local Authority Officers involved in developing food policy and Economic Development
Scotland Food and Drink
Sustainable Food Places food partnerships
Soil Association Scotland
Those working in other organisations who are directly supporting procurement in Scottish local authorities
