Project aim:

Pays Terres de Lorraine is looking to support the region's collective catering sector and producers in developing a sustainable food supply. The aim of the project is to provide support and raise awareness among stakeholders from both a legal and practical perspective.

Activities of ECOZEPT:

ECOZEPT pooled its skills with the Déclic agency to provide this support. In particular, we held information meetings and awareness-raising workshops on collective catering with local producers and producers' platforms. In-depth surveys of catering sites were carried out to take stock of the supply chains. This survey stage enabled the sites to be assisted in drawing up their public contracts.
