The 5 bakeries of Bou'Sol– two of which opened this year – supply restaurants and caterers with bread that is 100% organic and without additives. But the co-operative has also designed a toolkit on how to set up a social bakery and has joined with partners in the trade to develop a policy to help the unemployed find work.
Each bakery employs 10 people, 7 of them via an employability scheme, and has a production facility that bakes 500,000 loaves of bread annually, for almost 40 clients in the restaurant business.
With support from the Carrefour Foundation, Bou’Sol has recruited 3 people to develop the network of social bakeries.
For the national bread day, the several bakeries organised activities around France, during the whole month of May 2017.
A great project that is organic, local and social!
