A number of alternative approaches are available to stimulate local purchasing, requiring various levels of resources. However, none of the initiatives studied could provide evidence that they generated many links between local companies. The findings of the research suggest that this is largely due to the purchasing practices adopted by large companies, which no longer provide opportunities for the small local supplier. In view of this it was concluded that Local Purchasing Initiatives should focus on encouraging inter-trading between companies of all sizes, rather than just large buyers and small suppliers.
