Summary

Many food producers and institutional kitchens are positive about using locally produced food products in their kitchens nowadays. Despite this good will, there is often a lack of good practice. This paper presents an example of good practice. It identifies the main obstacles to using local food products - difficulties in finding producers and problems in the supply of suitable products - and how these have been overcome.
