Joint Baltic Sea Region Report for Sustainable Public Procurement and Catering Services
This report presents the results of the mapping of Public Procurement and Catering Services (PPCS) which discloses the national legal framework and innovative approaches, organisational and business structures and operational ‘shop floor' performance regarding the provision of public meals. The report was developed through the EU-funded StratKIT project (Innovative Strategies for Public Catering: Sustainability Toolkit across Baltic Sea Region 2019-2021).
As the current practices of PPCS are closely related to the supranational policy framework, this is also briefly reflected with the best practices both from within and outside the EU. The information enables the analysis of the green or sustainable features as performed by country-specific PPCS. These results help the project partners to understand and identify the opportunities for sustainable development by PPCS.
StratKIT is funded by the Interreg Baltic Sea Region Programme.
