The economy of proximity in Atlantic: ANATOLE meets RAFAEL

This post is also available in: Español (Spanish) Français (French) Português (Portuguese (Portugal))

The Anatole project is guided by a engagement with the quality and competitiveness of our markets for the development of the economy of proximity. Directed by the Association of Chambers of Agriculture of the Atlantic Arc, ANATOLE is a transnational initiative which seeks the creation of networks for the development of local markets for the primary sector.

Within the partnership of the ANATOLE project, the CAAC is in charge of strengthening the transnational dimension, of the “Atlantisation” of the project. In this regard, it has been interesting to discover good practices on an Atlantic level, among which the RAFAEL project stands out. The ANATOLE project aims to give cities a coordinating role by using renewed and innovating forms of organization for the economy of proximity. The project reorganises field operators, intermediary organisations and cities or other territorial entities, from 4 Atlantic Arc countries. The RAFAEL project, financed through the INTERREG IIIB Atlantic Area programme, integrates the economy of proximity with healthy eating habits, based on the “Atlantic diet”. A result worth highlighting is the Appetit Charter, which defines the modalities that should be taken into account.
