To support the growth of organic agriculture, public procurement of organic food may be a useful instrument to increase the demand and achieve a critical food volume required for efficient distribution. Educational institutions and hospitals are of special interest for pedagogical and health reasons, but are challenging due to the many different stakeholders involved.
Several projects have been conducted to study the implementation of organic food in these contexts, to reveal efficient strategies to enhance organic consumption, and describe main hindrances to overcome.
