Nestled high in the Alps and bringing together 450,000 inhabitants in 49 urban, rural and mountain municipalities, Grenobles-Alpes Metropole has a unique food system linked to its geography.
The Metropole has focused its efforts on areas such as agriculture with its Metropolitan Agricultural Strategy 2015-2020. This strategy seeks to drive sustainable and quality farming in rural municipalities – which make up 15% of the metropole’s territory – and link these with other urban areas within the metropole through short supply chains.
Through Food Trails, Grenoble-Alpes Metropole aims to re-territorialise its food system. This means driving a more sustainable approach for catering, supporting farmers’ adaptation to climate change effects and launching initiatives to support evolution of the eating habits of the metropole’s inhabitants.
