Local Food Sourcing Guidance
This Local Food Sourcing Guidance, produced by Defra, is designed to help buyers and specifiers of food and catering services who are seeking to collaborate with others to aggregate demand, to encourage small producers to tender for their business.
This guidance complements the guide ‘Aggregation - is bigger always better?’ produced by the Office of Government Commerce (OGC) to help buyers:
Assess the benefits and potential dangers of aggregation; and
Decide whether or not aggregation is the best solution for a particular contract, taking account of the requirements of the contract and the organisation - including the costs of letting and managing it and the structure and properties of the market.
Developing local supply chains opens up opportunities for small Welsh producers.
