In just one month’s time, the Sustainable Catering Forum will bring together a wide-range of participants working in the field of sustainable public procurement, such as public procurers of food and catering services, local and regional government representatives, catering suppliers, researchers and more. The event will take place on 9 June 2016 in Ghent (Belgium).
The primary objective of the Forum is to give participants a space to learn from each other, exchange experience, and build new alliances for the changes needed to respond to the environmental, economic and social challenges that city-region food systems face. Guidance and experiences gathered over the last three years from the European INNOCAT project, which focused on purchasing eco-innovative catering and food, will be on show throughout.
Topics to be discussed include transforming school food services to healthier and more climate-friendly alternatives, minimising the environmental impact of hospital catering services, and reducing food waste and packaging. The draft programme is now available; registration can be completed online.
