British food should be sourced for patients

7th December 2011

An investigation by the Countryside Alliance Foundation has found that only 10% of hospital trusts are aware of where the food served to patients comes from.

A total of 225 out of 267 trusts did not know what countries the food they served in their hospitals, clinics and centres originated from in 2009/10 and for the 37 trusts that did know where their produce came from, just 62% of the food was British. Best performer was Humber Foundation Trust where 98% of the food they served throughout 2009/10 was British.
