In Switzerland, in the wealthy but heterogenous region of the Geneva Lake, local products hardly ever found their way into public catering. The political ambition of the cantons government was, though, to have a maximum of local products on pupils’ and students’ plates in public catering. The Ecozept team was called in to put up a strategy on how to match local supply and public demand. Our grassroot work on the level of economic actors and our practical understanding of the challenges in public catering permitted to put up an action plan which is focusing on best practice examples that will be further improved, rolled out und multiplied all over the territory. It’s almost done!
