United Nations

The United Nations is an international organization founded in 1945 after the Second World War by 51 countries committed to maintaining international peace and security, developing friendly relations among nations and promoting social progress, better living standards and human rights.

Russell Partnership Collection was commissioned to develop the Global Guidelines for the United Nations Service Procurement. The process included interviewing regional duty stations to understand current country practice, establishing global best practice and existing UN procurement cycles, regulations and roles, developing a background guideline document and creating the Food Service Guidelines.

Our work continues as Food Advisors to the UN for the implementation and delivery of the UN Vision.

The UN is now reaping the benefits of global economies of scale and consistent sustainable food sourcing.
