MONTREAL, June 22, 2022. The Collectif Récolte, as part of its work with the Local and Integrated Food System in Montreal (SALIM), is proud to launch the case study process of institutional supply models in proximity circuit, with the collaboration of the MITACS program.
Within the framework of this project, the team's mission is to characterize the demand of actors who have set up local food supply circuits in the institutional environment, in order to identify the accessibility factors, the conditions of success for their development and their sustainability.
"The National Strategy for the Purchase of Quebec Food (Stratégie nationale d’achat d’aliments québécois) and the emergence of the Commun'Assiette community of practice are encouraging more and more institutions to source locally. But these institutions need models and my job is to identify the obstacles, the accessibility factors and the conditions for success to make their lives easier" says Emilie Boivin-Deroy, project manager for short and local food circuits.
The case studies will be launched in September as part of the "Les institutions mangent local" week from September 19-23, 2022. In the meantime, you can follow the progress of the interviews and data collection on our social networks : Facebook︱Instagram︱LinkedIn.
