In 2015, Lausanne launched its sustainable collective catering plan – Plan RCD. The overall objective is the promotion of local and organic products in school restaurants and nurseries. Five indicators have been set up: – 70% of local products (grown or raised within 70km of the city) – no budget overrun – 30% of the labelled products – respect of the food pyramid according to age – a day without meat or fish Achievements: REDD made an inventory of the potential supply chains capable of responding to the local indicator and to the needs of the chefs. The following sectors were covered: milk products, meat, fish, eggs, fruits and vegetables and bakery products. The results of this inventory were presented and discussed during three training sessions I which participated all the chefs.
