Abstract

Through its procurement the public has the power influence local food economies in a more sustainable way and as a result public food has increasingly become polticized over the past decades. In some countries strategists has traditionally set ambitions on increasing the share of organics in public procurement as a mean to contribute to more sustainable foods systems. But the politicisation has also lead to a call for more locally sourced food. This paper examines the case of procurement in the city of Aalborg and builds on in depth interviews with representatives from both demand and supply side. It concludes by pointing to a number of factors that are enabling and supporting both organic and short chain priorities in this sector. It finally lists a number of disabling factors that seems to hinder the development.
