Summary

The Victorian Government is committed to ensuring that food served in our public hospitals and public sector residential aged care services is fresh, healthy and where possible, locally sourced, supporting Victorian farmers and producers.

From 2020, all Victorian public hospitals and aged care facilities will be required to follow new health and quality food standards, informed by a comprehensive audit of their food services.

The audit will assess the nutritional value, quality (including taste, variety and cultural diversity) and origin of the food being served up in public hospitals and aged care services across Victoria.
