You are courteously invited to participate in COCOREADO's workshop to hear of solutions and to discuss issues on lowering the barriers for farmers to participate in Sustainable Public Procurement.
Online Workshop 24.01.24
In the workshop you will learn of purchasing method Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) that has been proven successful enabling also unexperienced farmers to participate in SPP.
Moreover, by participating in the workshop, you will hear of following inspiring examples:
- LuRu-project in Finland is helping public procurers to reach the target set for municipalities to have 25% of organic food in public purchases by 2030. Anu Arolaakso, Project Manager in Savo Consortium for Education, Strategic Support, describes how they have abridged the gap between public procurers and producers in Finland in a practical way to increase participation of small sustainable organic producers in public procurement. The concrete results are fit both to procurement systems that buy products or that buy services.
- The Copenhagen Hospitality College changed from one wholesaler to a range of specific contracts to secure short supply chain as part of the education of next generation of chefs. Line Rise Nielsen, Changing Food, explains how innovatively suppliers and farmers were included to SPP simultaneously participating in educating young people.
