Can you eat organic and local in Isère? This is the challenge of Eat Bio Isère, a cooperative company which develops short circuits and access to healthy products from organic farming.
A major player in the structuring of the organic sector in the Isère region since 2005, Mangez Bio Isère brings together more than 50 organic producers and processors as well as a salaried team. This cooperative acts for an organic and local supply of food professionals, especially in collective catering.
Eat Organic Isère acts at each stage of the organic sector to promote a local economy, respect for the environment, access to quality products for all and the integration of each actor in the chain. The cooperative society has thus developed a wide offer touching different trades.
- LOGISTICS - First of all, purchases and supplies are made in close collaboration with local producers, members of the cooperative, to guarantee traceability and high product quality. In order to preserve their freshness, Mangez Bio Isère has developed an efficient logistics platform that meets the requirements of short circuits. Transport is optimized for delivery from field to plate.
- ONLINE ORDER - To meet the needs of food professionals, Mangez Bio Isère has an adapted commercial offer, notably thanks to online orders, a service that provides responsiveness.
- TRACEABILITY - Finally, all along the chain, Mangez Bio Isère guarantees quality of service and products with total transparency and rigorous traceability.
The territory of Isère is rich in varied organic farming: dairy products such as Saint Marcellin PGI chesse or lentils from Trièves, producers in Isère highlight the resources and specialties of the department. Mangez Bio Isère works in collaboration with cooperative farmers to develop the agricultural sectors of Isère: vegetables, fruit, meats, dairy products and grocery stores, all to offer a tasty and diverse range to their customers.
Mangez Bio Isère today supplies more than 140 establishments. The logistics platform has expanded with twice as much space at the Grenoble National Interest Market. For 2 years, the cooperative society has offered its services not only to public establishments but also to food businesses.
