Project details
Diagnosis of agriculture and collective catering in the Charente department (France)


  • Project duration: 2023 - 2023
  • Client: Department of Charente
  • Department(s):
    Supply chains and territories
    Sustainable catering

Project aim:
The Department of Charente wants to support the local and sustainable supply of collective catering for middle schools and medico-social establishments in its territory. The department would like to know the available agricultural supply, the current outlets and the constraints encountered in supplying collective catering. At the same time, a diagnosis of the colleges and medico-social establishments is carried out to characterize the demand and to identify actions to improve supply (fight against food waste, new technical equipment, training of canteen teams, etc.).

Activities of ECOZEPT:
Ecozept conducts phone interviews and online surveys with farmers, colleges, and medico-social establishments. The collected data allows us to draw up different scenarios to encourage the supply of local and quality products to collective catering.

Promotion of sustainable food in out-of-home catering in the department "Bouches-du Rhône" (South of France)

Since 2020, the Aix-Marseille-Provence metropolitan region and the Arles area have been jointly implementing a regional food project (PAT) in the Bouches-du-Rhône department.
