The transition to 100% organic without additional costs, that is possible! Okay, said like that, we do not believe it. However, the city of Mouans-Sartoux, as any other local community, has the concern of good money management. In France, a conventional meal costs, in terms of purchase of food, between 1.50 and 2.00 €. This is an average established by the Agores national network of catering managers. Mouans-Sartoux is in the high range of this average for meals entirely from organic farming with a raw material cost of 2.04 €. How did she achieve this result? Four main levers were activated: 80% reduction in food waste, integration of the seasonal cuisine (raw, bulk and fresh products), no purchase without knowing the price before the order, reduced consumption of meat (A non-meat meal is offered every week). One last element that should not be ignored: the motivation, the training and the pleasure of the cooking teams.
Financial involvment of families according to the income ratio: from 2.00 to 6.20 € (average price is 3.13 €). Meal cost in 2018: € 2.04. Cost price of an all-inclusive meal: 10,57 €.
