About the ‘City Agro-Park’ Lab

The Ostend FoodSHIFT Accelerator Lab will develop a food strategy for the city of Ostend, in which the newly developed agricultural park Gardens of Stene is the engine for stimulating the local food dynamics and raising awareness on short food supply chains and healthy diet.

 

In the Food Strategy, Ostend will strengthen the link between the local producers and the catering sector and provide high quality education on local products, short food supply chains and food waste targeted at chefs.

 

The Lab will also work to combat poverty by offering new jobs and supporting vulnerable societal groups in acquiring a more healthy diet.
