Policy Recommendations: Using procurement for a systemic food transformation
Keywords: EU Policies | Procurement Policies | Strategies Public procurement of sustainable and healthy food represents a strategic vehicle to achieve sustainability policies and targets, such as the Sustainable Development Goals, at national, regional, and local level. Whether it is public health, organic agriculture, animal welfare, social considerations or proximity food economy, the strategic use of food procurement can contribute enormously to the implementation of the EU Farm to Fork Strategy. In addition, public food procurement strategies should be designed to help achieve the ‘right to food’ enshrined in the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights, and include all actors in the food chain from “farm to fork”.
