Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to examine how food managers of Östergötland County disucss around their possibilities of reaching the government´s orientation towards 25 per cent of the food - procured, prepared and cooked in the school meal - coming from certified organic production. The study was a cross-sectional study in wich a qualitative approach was used. The sample consisted six food managers in Östergötland. Data processing was done through a semantic content analysis.  The result showed that involvment and intrest were significant factors for the introduction of organic food in the school meal. The three municipalities with the highest percentage of organic food used the SMART - concept. All food managers experienced a higher cost to purchase organic food. Half of the food managers felt that they did not have sufficient financial resources. The remaining three had somewhat differing opinions about  the resources that were available. There were no common barriers to the procurement of organic food.
