11 lessons learned from the Green Deal Circular Procurement

 

  1. Strive to reduce food loss and waste.

  2. Optimal repurposing of uneaten food. If you suffer food loss, try to use it in the highest quality way possible by following the value retention flowchart.

  3. Stimulate a short, transparent and local chain.

  4. Use seasonal ingredients.

  5. Commit to sustainable, reusable packaging.

  6. Optimise the impact of logistics.

  7. A chain with respect for social and ethical aspects: a guarantee of fair prices and good working conditions.

  8. Change behaviour of end users by raising awareness about sustainable and healthy food.

  9. Together, we’re stronger. By combining forces, you increase volumes and can demand more from suppliers.

  10. Flexible contract documents. Does every single dish have to be available until the end of the service, or is a certain level of diversity acceptable?

  11. Change management is important if products offered are changed.
