Food Farming and Countryside Commission refers to fresh-range for Dynamic Food Procurement 07/08/2019, Catering

One of their recommendations is: ‘Implementing world-leading public procurement, fully using this powerful tool to transform the market’. Within this section, fresh-range and the Bath & North East Somerset pilot is quoted as a successful model for Dynamic Food Procurement. Once again, this demonstrates that fresh-range’s ground-breaking technology is the leader in the UK - perhaps globally - at reforming public sector food procurement in line with government interests.
