Victorian government departments are starting to change the way that they purchase food and drinks, for the benefit of people and the planet.

When purchasing catering for government funded meetings, functions and events, staff of Victorian Government departments are required to:

  1. select healthier food and drink options
  2. consider businesses that deliver social and environmental outcomes

SENVIC members are invited to an online information session to be held on Thursday 27th April from 1-2pm.

The session will provide an overview of the changes and how you can position your business to meet increased market demand for healthier food and drinks and more inclusive and sustainable business practices.  It will also provide an opportunity for you to hear about a Victorian Government-funded initiative through the Healthy Eating Advisory Service, to establish a directory of caterers who have committed to identifying and promoting their healthier catering menu items and sustainable business practices. Register now (click here) to attend the session and hear how your business can appear on the directory when it goes live in May 2023
