Le CFA d’Avignon
Le CFA d’Avignon is a dedicated apprenticeship center that offers training for both young people and adults who are interested in vocational opportunities in the food sector. Specialisms include butchery, patisserie and (bread) baking. The center offers comprehensive infrastructure and equipment to train students to a high standard that can facilitate improved career outlooks. The center is now setting up an innovative partnership to link up their butchery department, local meat producers and the city canteens to provide local, high quality meat. This will support the position of local meat producers and apprentices, as well as providing high quality, fresh meat at municipality canteens.
The main aim in the coming period is to mature the initiative by formalizing the partnership and by conducting a pilot period to establish if the partnership is effective and what elements must be adjusted or improved. Once the partnership is functioning well, it is hoped that more stakeholders can be engaged to expand the partnership.

FoodSHIFT 2030 aims to launch an ambitious citizen-driven transition of the European food system towards a low carbon circular future, including a shift to less meat and more plant based diets. This transition is necessary in order to address the pressing challenges for food and nutrition security, contribute to the EU commitment of reducing GHG emissions by at least 40% by 2030, and revitalize urban-rural linkages and partnerships.
To do so, it establishes FoodSHIFT Accelerator Labs for maturing, combining, upscaling and multiplying existing food system innovations across nine front-runner city-regions. In turn these innovations contribute to the FoodSHIFT vision.
An Innovation Catalogue called “Innovation Portraits” was created to snapshot each of the Food Innovations connected with each of the FoodSHIFT Accelerator Labs (FALs) across the 9 city regions.
Info about the Innovation Portraits Catalogue
The Innovation Catalogue will snapshot each of the Food Innovations connected with each of the FoodSHIFT Accelerator Labs (FALs) across the 9 city regions. Each FAL has a dedicated innovation focus and each chapter will present innovation cases from a particular FAL. For each of the innovations presented, a snapshot of the innovation concept and purpose will be given, alongside the key impacts the innovation has in relation to the FoodSHIFT Impact Pathways and the acceleration ambitions of the innovation.
In addition, each innovation portrait is also categorized according to its Innovation Dimension. These dimensions indicate what kind of innovation is being presented, and where in the value chain it plays a role. This is indicated by these tabs. The dimensions are defined as follows:
Product – Innovations in this category address new or updated products, including quality, safety and market impact.
Process – These innovations are relevant to new technologies for processing, logistical improvements, infrastructure and new/improved services.
Social – Innovations in this category are relevant to changes in behaviour (e.g. consumers/citizens), development of new relationships and inclusiveness.
Governance – The innovations address policy developments, including food planning, subsidies, taxing, certificates & labelling.
