Public food procurement can help lead to more satisfied and healthier diners, proper animal care, and to achieving local and regional environmental and climate objectives.
As contracting entities, it is important to first consider the stated objectives in your municipality and how to achieve healthy public food services. Gather your colleagues and work through the entire procurement process together – this gives the entire organisation a greater understanding of the parameters of the procurement process and will help you achieve favourable results.
Public procurement rounds that yield coveted products and services at the best prices and under competitive terms and conditions can be achieved in several ways. The contracting entities are allowed to, able to and should stipulate requirements on the quality of the food, the environment and animal protection.
