Sustainable school meals in East Ayrshire

Action leader(s)

East Ayrshire Council


East Ayrshire was one of the first councils in the UK to change its procurement practices to reflect the Soil Association’s guidelines on sustainable food. In a new contract advertised in 2008, the council wished to offer more sustainable school meals, including reductions in packaging waste.
