*Please note this seminar is also being held in Edinburgh on 27th September*
The Scottish Government has an aspiration that Scotland should become a Good Food Nation. Food should be a key part of what makes the people of Scotland proud of their country – "food which is both tasty to eat and nutritious, fresh and environmentally sustainable" where "…all players in Scottish life – from schools to hospitals, retailers, restaurants and food manufacturers are committed to serving such food."
As a result, public procurement is high on the agenda. Recent guidance for the Procurement Reform Act 2014 requires authorities to take action on sustainable procurement as of July 2016 and the SNP manifesto commits to increase organic food in the public sector. The Food for Life Catering Mark can help local authorities meet these requirements.
Join us for a short seminar to hear more about the Catering Mark and how we can help you meet your sustainable procurement duties and achieve the high quality of food you want to serve.

- local authority caterers & catering managers across any sector
