Supplying local food to the Public Sector

The government is developing a new online platform for public sector food procurement that will be piloted in the South West in early 2021. The South West Food Hub is preparing the region for the pilot by working with public sector partners to prepare them to buy their food through the new platform, whilst supporting local producers and suppliers to get ready to supply through it.

“Dynamic Food Procurement holds the prospect of creating shorter, more adaptable, more resilient supply chains, with fewer barriers to participation, particularly for local producers. Approaches such as this are needed now, more than ever.”
