SOLAAL's approach starts to produce tangible results that echo the Foundation’s own focuses of action, including the food industry, food collections and donations, as well as nutrition programmes : 1 200 tons of food products have been donated by the end of December. 92% of them were fresh food.
The Carrefour Foundation has contributed to the development of SOLAAL's activities for the third time in 2015 and has renewed its help in 2016. It also acts as a facilitator by involving Carrefour's collaborators and warehouses in the logistics. In light of the encouraging results of the activities carried out by SOLAAL since 2013 (distribution of 5,800 tons of products, creation of the first national day of agricultural donations), the Foundation will continue to support SOLAAL by financing up to 20% of the total budget of the project.
In 2017, the Carrefour Foundation will continue funding SOLAAL for a pilot project in two french regions, and the creation of a smartphone application in order to facilitate the donation of farmers.
In 2018, the Foundation is supporting the creation of a meat donation chain in Normandy. From donations from voluntary breeders of the Normandy Race Quality Network (FQRN), chopped steaks will be provided to food aid associations, which often lack protein products. On the other hand, SOLAAL is pursuing the objective of developing in the PACA and New Aquitaine regions.
