Promoting the territory’s short circuits

The issue of short circuits is at the heart of the concerns of the Sarreguemines Confluences Urban Community. Committed to the Northern Vosges Territorial Food Project, the intercommunity has affirmed its desire to become operationally involved in structuring a range of products in short circuits in the territory. The results of the online questionnaire relating to the agglomeration project (May-June 2021) confirm the interest of the territory and its users in this issue since in the proposed courses of action, the promotion and valorization of products in circuits- courts concentrated more than 270 votes, making this action the one with the most votes. This demand for proximity and quality has also been accentuated by the covid-19 health crisis, during which consumers have clearly expressed their desire to change their habits.

In order to meet this need, the City of Sarreguemines notably allowed the establishment of a weekly farmer's drive in partnership with the Association of Producers of Pays de Bitche, an operation which met with great success. The Sarreguemines Confluences Urban Community has also been able, in the past, to support players in the sector in difficulty, in particular by ensuring the takeover of the Sarreguemines Abattoir, which threatened to permanently close its doors. At the same time, the Urban Community is also engaged alongside the Mixed Union of the Arrondissement of Sarreguemines in carrying out a preparatory study and consultation time with local producers in order to address the development of short circuits on the territory and to discuss the opportunity to open a collective point of sale in Sarreguemines. Thus, the community now wishes to engage in supporting structured and lasting actions around short circuits.

In fact, in 2022 the Urban Community acquired skills to acquire skills in the development of short circuits, committing to supporting the development of sustainable agriculture and/or short circuits. short courses to promote local know-how and products.

The first operational action in this area was the organization of the first edition of the Grand Marché des Producers on October 10, 2021 on the Esplanade du Casino de Sarreguemines. At the same time, a position was created in September 2021, 1/5th of which is dedicated to supporting projects to promote short circuits.

This market made it possible to create the prerequisites for the success of a more structuring project to promote products in short circuits. This event created the opportunity for producers to take a first step in collaborative work, the human factor being essential for the success of these projects. This first contact and partnership work between the community and the farmers of its territory will serve as a basis for the development of a broader and ambitious promotion strategy, which remains to be defined to date.

This event thus meets an operational objective of promoting and promoting local agricultural stakeholders, allowing the creation of new distribution channels for local products. It is also the subject of the development of targeted communication contributing to the promotion of local know-how and the image of the territory.
