HTS launches in Rennes and Nantes a new sector for the valorization of unsold vegetables and fruit

Below

HTS (Handicap Work and Solidarity) was created in 2013 to promote social and professional insertion of disabled people. HTS aims to create jobs for disabled people and facilitate their insertion in citizen life, for example by strengthening links between students and ESAT (Structures facilitating the work of disabled people).

In 2018, the Carrefour Foundation support the launch of the project in Rennes and Nantes. The objective is the valorization of unsold or spoiled fruit and vegetables, collected from producers or distributors. These raw products will be processed in ESAT structures and distributed to firms, collectivities, restaurants, groceries or supermarkets.

This project is part of a European strategy called Solifoodwaste, aiming at recycling more efficiently bread, fruit and vegetables before 2022. HTS aims at developing the project in forty to sixty cities before 2022.
