Food Waste Digital Solutions - Market Engagement

Market engagement for Food Waste Digital Solutions

Hampshire County Council are looking to engage with providers who would be interested in delivering this service, and/or have experience of delivering similar services.

What is it about - The requirement is for a digital engagement tool which will address key food waste prevention behaviours in the home to replace the public engagement events that cannot take place at the moment. The digital solution should be free to use by residents, easily accessible on different platforms and currently exist beyond proof of concept.
The solution should collect data and use this to provide on-going feedback to residents to facilitate behaviour change, including:
Advice on key food waste reduction behaviours
Types (and ideally weight in kgs) of food wasted
Evidence of how food waste has been prevented
The solution should also act as a means for the County Council to communicate new messages with users in accordance with the feedback received from use of the digital tool by residents.

What is the aim of the early engagement - At this stage the County Council is looking to establish which suitable suppliers exist in the marketplace and:
An outline of their suggestions for a solution to meet the need (described below)
Their thoughts on any potential issues
Feedback around what can be achieved with different budget levels (current budget is £12,000)
