Opportunity and feasibility study for the creation of a vegetable factory and storage unit

Project aim:
The Gers company Vergers de Gascogne would like to study the opportunity and feasibility of setting up a first processing and preservation unit in the Gers in order to enhance the value of organic and local fruit and vegetables in various forms through different distribution channels (Large and Medium-sized Surfaces, specialised distribution, collective and commercial catering, etc.).

Activities of ECOZEPT:
Ecozept, in partnership with the CERFRANCE Gascogne Occitanie, is initially carrying out an opportunity study by conducting a study of the potential market and offer. This assessment is constructed through targeted interviews with players potentially interested in the project and an inventory of similar projects in France. This data is then used to propose different sizing scenarios as well as an analysis of the technical, economic, legal and financial feasibility.

The economic importance of direct sales (in organic production) WiBiDi

Direct sales are an important trade sector in Germany. Around 2,45 billion euros is spent each year on weekly markets and directly from farmers alone. However, there is yet no scientific data on the importance of direct marketing of organic products for both farmers and the national economy. The main aim of this project is therefore to evaluate the national and regional economic importance of direct marketing of organic products in Germany, and to elaborate a method which allows regular updates in statistical data. Simultaneously, the collected data should enable to develop economic indicators of marketing channels such as market stalls, vending machines or mail order.
