 Join us to better understand how your food partnership can respond to the consultations launched in England off the back of the Government Food Strategy.


The Government's Food Strategy was launched last month and with it, two public consultations were opened in England looking for views on: government buying standards for food and catering services and improved food waste reporting for large food businesses.

Food partnerships are well placed to respond to consultations because they have a good understanding of the local context. We are taking this opportunity to give an overview of the consultations to support food partnerships to send their own responses.

There will also be a presentation on the contents of the new Procurement Bill and how this links to food buying.
