The Power of the Public Plate - Analysis of Public Procurement Impact Across The Food Value Chain
This analysis has been done by ICLEI - Local Governments for Sustainability as part of ‘Procurement across the value chain’ - project under the One Planet Network.Network. It demonstrates that procurement, as part of the middle stage of the value chain, has significant influence over the other stages across the value chain. The objective of the analysis is to better understand how procurement can be used as a tool to support more sustainable food systems. The review resulted in the identification and curation of 7 impact typologies across UN World regions:
● Sourcing local through fresh and seasonal food items
● Smallholder-friendly procurement
● Supporting a healthy and nutritious diet
● Reducing waste from food and packaging
● Fair employment conditions
● Sourcing organic produce
● Increase of plant-based food and supporting animal welfare

The Power of the Public Plate - Recommendations for procurers and policy makers
Public procurers hold the power to influence the entire food value chain and through their decisions can affect both production and consumption practices. This position creates a strategic opportunity to leverage public sector demand for sustainable development. Seizing the potential, however, comes with great complexity as it requires innovation within the respective procurement system, connecting the actual procurement to a much wider process linking to policy goals and engaging various stakeholders.
The recommendations address the different stages of the food value chain to make it more sustainable: input industry, primary production, food processing & packaging, transport & logistics, retail, food service, individual consumption and finally, waste & disposal.
