“Doing Things Differently” is an event aimed at all those involved, either directly or indirectly, with public sector food and catering procurement.
Healthy and sustainable food procurement is a key topic across all areas of the public sector from primary school catering to hospital trusts. The focus is on obtaining the best available food options which meet health requirements, value for money and overall sustainability within the supply chain.
This event will outline the national policy context and drivers for healthy food procurement, highlight some excellent case studies, identify tools and standards to support effective catering, provide opportunities for buyer/ supplier networking and will allow for discussion via a series of facilitated workshops. A range of topics will be discussed from healthier vending and Sugar Smart to local sourcing and waste reduction. Please see the draft programme attached.
Confirmed speakers and organisations include: Public Health England, Dr Kevin Morgan (University of Cardiff) North Bristol Trust, Soil Association, B&NES Council, Bath Spa University, Sustain.
