The Metropolitan City of Bologna adheres to a corporate purchasing group
In order to encourage responsible and sustainable consumptions of agri-food products, the Metropolitan City of Bologna decided to promote a purchasing group through Local To You.
What is Local To You? Born in 2016, Local To You is an organic business and benefit corporation which involves several local social cooperatives; the cooperatives support disadvantages people returning into the labour market through the valorisation of agricultural realities of the territory.
Employees of the Metropolitan City of Bologna can choose products and food boxes on the online platform, order and receive them directly in the food court of the venue every Thursday.
The online platform showcases seasonal, organic and local products, especially fruits, vegetables and cereals. A specific section is dedicated to present the agricultural businesses from whence the products come.
