Food Bank 

Attesting to a strong commitment toward the environment, the association Aremacs and GL events will continue the exploratory scheme of sorting and recycling organic waste implemented during Sirha Green. The association will offer training and seek to raise awareness in both exhibitors and visitors, in partnership with several partners (Metro and Institut Paul Bocuse at the 6e Sens stage). This will include providing information and figures on the collection and recycling of waste, ensuring the organic waste collected during the trade show is returned to the earth in partnership with association ‘les Détritivores’ (part of the Territoire Zero Chômeur experimental scheme), and industrial composting of some waste products with Ecovalim.

The Food Bank wad present at the venue to collect non-used food products from the exhibitors and redistribute them. In 2019, 17 tonnes of food were collected and redistributed and 3 tonnes of bio-waste recycled by Aremacs.
