Catering Food Procurement RM6131

Crown Commercial Service (CCS) is currently working with public sector stakeholders to establish a new commercial agreement to support central government departments and wider public sector organisations to innovatively procure and deliver catering food.



CCS is seeking to establish an agreement to deliver a UK-wide, SME-inclusive procurement vehicle to provide fulfilment and delivery capabilities for public sector food buyers, which would address Government policy in the following areas:

  • Food security
  • Transparency of provenance and accountability within food supply chains
  • Improve performance on energy, waste, social and environmental factors of food production.
  • Reduce diet related disease burden
  • Boost regional economies in every region of the UK
  • Improve value and reduce cost for public purse


Market engagement

CCS will be hosting engagement workshops to discuss the scope and approach in more detail, and gather your valued feedback and input to ensure we meet customer needs to deliver commercial benefit.
