SYNOPSIS

Institutional food procurement policies can notably affect market demand for healthy foods. For example, if governmental facilities, hospitals, and schools require, whenever feasible, purchasing of local produce, this can significantly benefit retail sales of nutritious foods. These policy recommendations cover factors such as vendor bid incentives that can augment sales of healthy foods.
