– A 100% organic canteen financed by the reduction of food waste


The conference will share the experience of the city of Mouans-Sartoux. Wishing to offer students a food that respects health and the environment in 2008, the city decided to move to a canteen 100% organic with constant cost. Soon the issue of food waste proved to be the key to the financial success of the project. By successfully reducing food waste by 80%, the city generated an economy that financed the extra cost of organic food. Actions to achieve this goal will be described during the conference. This success has inspired the inhabitants of the city who, in turn, consume at home a more sustainable food, reduce their food waste and value their waste in their daily lives. During the conference Gilles Perole will present the actions implemented to support families in their evolution.
