Information on the buying standards and commitments for food and catering in the public sector.

We’ve agreed to work with partners to ensure public food and catering procurement is meeting the Government Buying Standards and commitments made in the Silver Sustainable Food City Action plan

The Soil Association Food For Life award is helping businesses and organisations to demonstrate this compliance. Small businesses can also demonstrate this through engagement with the Bristol Eating Better Award Scheme.
