Take Action

DPUK Food recommends and supports the following steps to bring Dynamic Food Procurement to your region:


Form a Virtual Food Hub

Communicate with DPUK Food so that all interested parties in your region can be effectively coordinated. Engage public and private sector buyers and producers, suppliers and logistic providers in your region to join the hub.


Work with anchor institutions in your region with an interest in Dynamic Food Procurement

Bring together local decision-makers and DPUK Food to discuss and review approach. Use DPUK Food to help progress discussions and seek advice around formation and funding.


Establish Dynamic Food Procurement in your institution or region

Introduce and integrate logistics providers, producers and suppliers to the framework and technology. Form short supply chains with the categories, producers and products sought by caterers within anchor institutions.

To support you with taking these steps towards Dynamic Food Procurement in your region, DPUK Food can help coordinate efforts, hold events, share resources and information and provide support and guidance.
