THE 'FERME CORALYS' CHARTER & OTHER LOCAL INITIATIVES AROUND THE WORLD

Promoting short circuits

Supporting the local economy, reducing the carbon footprint of our transport operations, improving the quality of our meals, helping to educate our customers’ tastes; our efforts around the world are moving in the same direction. The French initiative ‘La Ferme Coralys’ is one of the most well-known examples of our efforts.

The original idea was to build supply networks as close to our customers as possible.

Today we have two such networks: ‘La Ferme des Pommereaux’ in the Paris region which sup- plies 40 establishments with tomatoes and zucchini, and ‘La Ferme de Ressins’ in the Roanne which supplies about 50 establishments with a much wider range including meat, dairy products and a variety of garden produce.

In 2019, we are opening three new local supply networks even closer to our establishments in Haute-Loire, Drôme/Ardèche and Var/Alps.

By supporting local economies we are raising awareness about better eating.

Other short routes around the world

Fruits and vegetables growing in Peru

For several years now the Group has prioritised local procurement approaches in all countries in which it operates, through short routes and the involvement of local communities. In Austria in particular, Newrest Wagons-Lits offers Austrian wines on board trains. The Zambian team collaborates with a local farm produce distribution organization. In Canada, Reunion and Polynesia, we source local products through cooperatives.

ECOLOGY

Newrest is committed to the planet!

Aware of the importance of sustainable development and aiming to reduce its CO2 footprint by 5% each year, Newrest fully respects all essential environmental values.

With the aim of reducing waste, several approaches have been adopted by our teams around the world: selective sorting, waste weighing, the use of recyclable materials instead of plastics and the recycling of used oils. In Chile and in Croatia, an enzyme digester has even been installed to transform organic matter into clean water; in New Caledonia, our staff are using enzymatic detergents.

Lastly, with the aim of halving our energy consumption and improving lighting and working conditions for our employees in nearly all our facilities around the world, Newrest has changed its lighting systems over to LED technology.
