One of eight pilot projects in the European CORE Organic programme, innovative
Public Organic food Procurement for Youth, (iPOPY) will study efficient ways of
implementing organic food in public serving outlets for young people (2007-10). By
analysing practical cases of school meal systems and other food serving outlets for
youth, we will identify hindrances and promoting factors in the participating countries
(Denmark, Finland, Italy and Norway). Policies, supply chains, certification systems,
the young consumers’ perception and participation, and health effects of
implementation of organic policies and menus are focussed in iPOPY. The main aim is
to suggest efficient policies and comprehensive strategies to increase the
consumption of organic food among young consumers in a public setting, and
fostering sustainable nutrition. Interdisciplinary project tools under development will be
presented along with the first project results, which will be available by June 2008.
