The Government is committed to boosting support for a vibrant and competitive UK food
and farming sector. Our policy, as set out in the Government Buying Standards for Food
and Catering Services and PPN10/14 – the Plan for Public Procurement of Food and
Catering Services, is to source food and drink responsibly.

Information on the country of origin of food and drink purchases is not held centrally.
