StratKIT+

The project StratKIT+ guides public authorities, catering providers and others on sustainable procurement for schools, daycare, hospitals and other public institutions.
Project summary

There are many institutional, economic, social, and psychological barriers when it comes to implementing high-quality criteria into the public procurement and catering services. StratKIT+ project addresses these challenges by providing new additions to the previously developed Public Meal Toolkit, which helps implementing healthy and sustainable food into the public sector within the Baltic Sea Region while providing a community platform for the stakeholders.

Public meal organisations need support, guidance, and networks in incorporating environmental targets and strategies to their main task of serving nutritionally adequate meals. Addition to this, stakeholders need more support and tools to tackle different crisis situations that affect the public kitchens. The new Sustainable Public Meal Toolkit+ will provide even more practical examples and support for sustainable public meals with good accessibility for everyone in Baltic Sea Region and beyond.

Public meal stakeholders lack multiple resources (e.g. time, knowledge, funding, support) in the sustainable development of public meals. With the toolkit BSR public meal actors can cooperate by sharing knowledge and ideas related to different public meal solutions through practical pilot testing organised by the StratKIT+ project partners. These pilots have been successful way to share knowledge with stakeholders for example through organic farm visits, cooking trainings and workshops.

Practical testing and implementation of the toolkit helps the BSR public meal actors to commit to the sustainability goals that are challenging to reach with the limited resources. Through the StratKIT+ project public meal stakeholders can tackle challenges related to legal regulations, social challenges and crisis situations and become local pioneers in providing sustainable public meals. Addressing it all, StratKIT+ will contribute with a variety of ways to increased sustainability of public meals in BSR and beyond.

Overview

What we've achieved so far
Sustainable Public Meal Toolkit now available in 10 languages!

The Toolkit (www.sustainable-public-meal.eu) was translated into three new languages and is now available in all official languages spoken in the countries surrounding the Baltic Sea: Swedish, Finnish, Estonian, Lithuanian, Latvian, Russian, Polish, German, Danish and in English. The Toolkit was created during InterregBSR project StratKIT (2019 – 2021, #088) and is being now further developed under StratKIT+ project of the same programme. Having new partners from Latvia, Lithuania and Sweden allowed the geographical expansion of the Toolkit. Hence, the public procurers, catering professionals and citizens of these countries now have an easy access to all the tools, and they can start transforming their public procurement and catering services towards sustainability.
