Project aim:
Capdife (member of Croix-Rouge Insertion) wants to structure the food logistic plateform located in Clermont l'Hérault, and to diversify his activity by offering logistical services for local agricultural and food actors.
In this way, Capdife participates in structuring sustainable local food sector and creating insertion jobs. This project takes part in the Pays Cœur d'Hérault's territorial food project.

Activities of ECOZEPT:
The market study was being conducted in collaboration with the consultancy firms Extracité and GECE. The feasability study was realized by Manger Bio. It aimed at defining the potential supply and demand in the catchment area of the food logistic platform. Ecozept was particularly interested in the needs of the mass catering.
Ecozept also achieved a benchmark and a competitive analysis. All the data collected by the three consultancies permitted to propose scenarii for the distribution platform's organization (economic model, governance). It also assessed if the integration project matched with the logistics offer.

Logistical study for the short supply chains development

Organising short food supply chains in a context of a seafront and high seasonal tourist numbers: we had taken the measure of the stakes during a first project with CARA in Royan in 2017/2018. At the time, several objectives were identified to promote short food supply chains. In particular, we designed an action plan to structure the supply chains and satisfy demand with a strategic axis entitled "Encourage the creation of logistics partnerships between local players".
For the period 2018-2020, we conducted a study in the continuity of the previous one in order to find operational solutions to optimise logistics flows and thus facilitate the matching of supply and demand for local products in the territory.

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. PAT's follow a similar approach to the eco-model regions in Germany, but are not limited to organic food. The two local authorities want to support the region and especially the municipalities in their efforts to offer accessible, local, sustainable and high-quality food in out-of-home catering for all population groups.
