Assurance Guide for Public Sector Food Buyers

New assurance guide for public sector food buyers

Assurance bodies have worked together to provide new guidance for the government procurers and caterers who feed the public sector. Defra hopes that school and hospital food providers will use the standards as a blueprint for procurement. As part of that process, organisations including the British Lion Mark, NFU, BRC Global, SALSA, Red Tractor Assurance, Freedom Food, LEAF, Organic Food, Rainforest Alliance, Fairtrade, MSC and the Food for Life Catering Mark, have put together a guide to the assurance schemes that can help buyers balance quality and value when buying food. This guide is available for download here as a PDF document.
