Local Sourcing Action Plan

In 2009, the Welsh Assembly Government launched its Local Food and Drink Action Plan.

This plan is about supporting the development of food and drink companies to increase business and, safeguard and create additional jobs, whilst encouraging healthy eating, maintaining high standards in food safety, the development of local food cultures and reducing "food miles" in order to minimise the effect of food distribution on the environment.

One of the key elements of the plan is to lead by example and to encourage the whole public sector to procure more locally sourced products.
