Extract from press release (free translation from original quote)

« This prize is the result of an unprecedented collaboration between several partners: Arrivage, CRE de Laval and other actors on the ground (producers, restaurant owners and community organizations), that we were lucky enough to meet and with whom we were able to have fruitful discussions. This is how we came to imagine, together, innovative solutions to critical societal issues such as food waste, climate change and food insecurity » - Elodie Morandini, executive director of CRE de Laval
