Boulogne-Billancourt, 2016-Dec-29 — /EPR Retail News/ — On 28 December, three students who are passionate about food innovation will set off on an eight-month trip around the world on a quest to find innovative food-production practices.
The aim of the “Food & Globe” project is to draw up an inventory of evolving practices in three areas: sustainable farming methods, alternative sources of protein and innovative distribution channels. Carrefour has decided to support their “Innovation pathfinder” approach.
Food & Globe: around the world in 239 days and 14 countries
Adrien, Martin and Nicolas – three student foodies studying Innovation Management at Paris Dauphine and EM Lyon business School – will cross four continents on their eight-month journey to meet future food production stakeholders – researchers, farmers, entrepreneurs, chefs and consumers.
In Chile, for example, in an incubator specialised in sustainable farming and ethics; in Madagascar in a village that is self-sufficient as far as food is concerned or in Hong Kong in a city-based farm.
They will compile a list of sustainable farming methods (permaculture, agroforestry, aquaponics, etc.), alternative protein sources (insects, algae, etc.) and innovative distribution channels.
Carrefour – supporting the Food & Globe study to keep abreast of future trends
Carrefour has decided to support this endeavour which will help shed new light on farming methods, food practices and alternative consumer trends and help us develop a better understanding of them. Each stage of this journey will be relayed over Carrefour’s social networks until the students return to Paris in August 2017.
