Project aim:
The Loire-Atlantique Department had for several years been carrying out various actions to supply the collective catering sector with local, high-quality and organic food products. In order to go further and achieve the ambitious project objectives, the Department was looking for shared solutions to manage supplies, making it possible to remove the obstacles encountered by the catering companies and local food providers.

Activities of ECOZEPT:
Ecozept and its partner Espelia have combinated their skills to support this approach: the aim was to use experiences gained in other areas and to identify relevant pooling solutions for the area, taking into account the current situation, the players already involved and the specific needs and expectations of catering companies in the Loire-Atlantique department. Finally, the aim was to define a financial and governance model suitable for the system.

Support in the framework of a regional procurement programm for high schools

In 2015, the Hauts de France Region launched the operation "Manger Bio Local au Lycée" (Local Organic Eating at High School) in order to consolidate the development of organic surfaces in the Region, to ensure the sustainability of the region's organic businesses and to provide high school students with quality food. The objective set by this campaign was to reach 10% of local organic products in the collective catering of the partner high schools (40 in 2015, 70 planned for 2017). In 2017, the regional operation became "Je mange local au lycée" (I eat local at high school) with still this 10% target on local organic products and a target of 70% local products (organic and non-organic).
