Summary:imageThis is an interim report examining the potential for food procurement to contribute to sustainable development. Our initial work has focussed on procurement by the National Health Service (NHS), and we are therefore particularly interested in highlighting the links between health and sustainable development, and exploring the health impacts of procurement. In this summary we draw out issues of concern and recommend a number of actions which are relevant to the NHS and other public bodies, including local authorities and government departments, and even private companies.
