The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) plays an active part in the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs’ public sector food procurement initiative, and seeks to improve the sustainability of food supplied to the Department.
In 2006, the following proportion of food served within the FCO was of British Origin:
Percentage Meat 49 Fruit and vegetables 40 Cheese 40 Eggs 100 Fish 60 Milk 100 Bread 100
Fruit and vegetables
The contract for the supply of catering to the FCO changed hands in mid 2005 and as a result figures for that year could only be provided at disproportionate cost.
