NEPO’s solution for Milk & Dairy Products set to deliver social value benefits

NEPO has awarded a regional solution for the provision of milk and dairy products.

With an estimated annual value of £1.2m, the solution will provide NEPO Member Authorities with kitchen and nursery milk (including organic), and dairy products. The wider North East public sector can utilise the solution via NEPO’s free of charge associate membership scheme.

In addition to anticipated savings of £56k, NEPO’s Milk & Dairy Products solution will bring about a number of social value benefits including:
  • Sourcing milk from local, Red Tractor certified farmers.
  • Use of local farmers, in turn creating employment through local delivery arrangements.
  • Participation in school engagement initiatives including British Food Fortnight, to promote the value of locally sourced produce and healthy eating.

The successful suppliers are Embleton Hall Dairies, FP Processing, Greencroft and Acorn Dairies.
