Dutch event to look at achieving truly sustainable catering
The Metropolitan Region Rotterdam The Hague (MRDH), a group of local authorities that work together to strengthen their economic standing, are organising a meeting of the MRDH Sustainable Procurement network in Leidschendam-Voorburg (The Netherlands) on 8 September to discuss how sustainability, affordability and health concerns can come together in the procurement of catering services.
Procurers are obliged to keep a wide-range of criteria in mind when choosing a catering company: the supplier must have a broad selection of produce, unambiguous sales pricing, and work towards enhancing sustainability and facilitating social employment. Given the emissions expended in the production of food and the disposal of food waste, the type of catering bought can also have a significant impact on the environment.
Specialists, buyers and contract managers are invited to attend the event to discuss the ideal purchasing strategy for sustainable and cost effective catering services.
