Buy Better Food

The Buy Better Food Campaign for sustainable food on the public plate, or Buy Better Food Campaign, is a coalition of pan-European non-profit organisations – including networks of local and regional governments, as well as civil society organisations focusing on climate change, health and human rights. The Campaign calls for the uptake of public food procurement rules that work for the environment, consumers, and workers, and that provide healthy food to European citizens in public places such as schools, hospitals and elderly care homes.

The Campaign strives to represent a diverse pool of members with different backgrounds, affiliations and expertise.

The campaign calls on the European Commission to:

Set minimum EU-wide food procurement requirements that benefit planetary health and are fair and inclusive to producers, communities, and future generations.

Enable the inclusion of educational programmes on healthy food systems and diets into school curricula – as stated in the Healthy School Meals Petition.

Propose 2030 targets for procurement of minimum 20% organic, high-quality, and sustainable food for public canteens, schools, and kindergartens – as stated in the Sustainable Food Procurement Manifesto.

Propose 2030 targets for nutrition policies to be based on planetary health diets while maintaining sensitivity and awareness to other factors like geographic location, cultural norms, and socioeconomic status.
