    This report sets out to understand the capability of farmers and other regional food producers to supply UK schools, hospitals, and other public sector caterers through existing supply infrastructure. This is achieved through an examination of regional food supply data in the UK alongside published details of public food procurement contracts. This data is supplemented by a survey and interviews with procurement and supply chain representatives to build a picture of the current state of regional sourcing by the UK public sector. The aim is to identify opportunities to develop this relationship for the mutual beneficial development of both sectors.
