NEW ORIGINS” refers to the many challenges posed by the ecological and digital transitions that are impacting food markets.

Origin has a plural meaning and can be understood in different ways:

  • Local or global,
  • Plant or animal,
  • Bio-sourced or recycled,
  • Certified or connected,
  • Territorialised or regulated, etc.

The novelty is in how consumers are currently encouraged to question / revisit our fundamentals:

  • Local product sourced from an attempt to preserve an ancient variety.
  • New emerging sector.
  • New types of value-increasing information.
  • Packaging increasingly uses bio-sourced plastics derived from renewable resources (plant, animal, residual, etc.).
  • New ways of reconciling origin with a geographical location by using Territorial Food Plans (PAT in French) or urban farms.

New origins require new tools:

  • Transparency over a product’s entire production chain.
  • New apps can analyse the nutritional properties of products.
