Local Eat, represented by its co-creator Julie Royaux!

It is a free application shortening the distance between producers and consumers of the agri-food sector, designed to revitalize the local economy, which won the Wallonia Price attributed this May 4 by the Jury of the call for projects THE TASTE OF CHANGE – Design for food.

Consuming quality products while supporting local producers is an approach that many of us want to undertake, but without knowing what to do, where to go. Who are the small producers of Wallonia and Brussels? And where are they located? The Eat Local App provides a concrete and immediate response through new technologies. This innovative tool for smartphones and tablets will allow to find fresh local products in two clicks, wherever you are: once you download the app, select the type of desired product and the distance criteria.

Congratulations to Julie and the Local Eat team!
