Food systems in cities are actually not very resilient and self-sufficient, depending more and more on a system that tends to operate on a global scale. To reverse a set of weaknesses inherent to this lack of resilience, cities are promoting the implementation of production strategies that promote territorial proximity and the reduction of food waste through its circularity, reuse or recovery for energy purposes.
The Circular Food System operation will evaluate the food chain of Hub Criativo do Beato in a systemic and life cycle approach, which will include the definition of strategies in terms of supply, production and final disposal, for the agents of the local restaurant and the surroundings of the HCB.
Circular, a partner specialized in sustainability consultancy, will develop and promote pre-defined circularity strategies, and will explore the implementation of new strategies that may have their genesis during the evolution of the project, evaluating alternative options at the same time
A tool will also be developed to assess food flows associated with the catering system, which will produce performance indicators relating to the sustainability of the HCB food system.
