LACA releases Supply Chain Snapshot Survey results

15 Dec 2021
LACA has released the November and December Supply Chain Snapshot survey results, which cover four key areas including food substitutions/shortages, supply/delivery, price increases and recruitment challenges.

The School Food People are conducting the monthly survey in order to understand the impact of the recently reported HGV, food supply and recruitment issues within the school food sector. The surveys are run on a monthly basis to build an accurate picture of what’s going on.

For example the December survey found 90% of respondents are continuing to see food substitutions/shortages. The next survey will run again at the start of January 2022.

The survey, which is sent to all members each month takes no more than 2 minutes to complete.  Please continue to support us by completing the future surveys, as the results help to inform our regular discussions with the DfE.
