In 2015 the City of Milan define its food policy for a more sustainable and inclusive food system. The school canteen service is the main driver for achieving the goals of the Milan Food Policy.

In Milan, the service is managed according to the in-house providing model, entrusted to a public company Milano Ristorazione (municipal agency) totally controlled by the Municipality of Milan.

Through its public procurement system Milano Ristorazione is a driving force for the investments of the local food system.

The involvement of the private sector takes place through procurement developed according to public tenders, from this point of view the procurement criteria are fundamental to inform and guide the market towards more sustainable and inclusive goals.

By acting strategically, canteen procurement can become drivers for mobilizing investments in local food systems, achieving co-benefits on the environment, economy and society.
