Ekoalde is an association that organises the marketing of organic products from Navarre at fair prices.
Main results / outcomes
Ekoalde has a dual vocation: to provide a service to its members and to offer a wide range of products to consumers at fair prices. In this way, shorter value chains are encouraged, and the value of organic products produced and processed in Navarra is promoted.
The case of Ekoalde is easily replicable and necessary in any territory in order to articulate the supply and demand of locally sourced organic products. Likewise, Ekoalde can grow without ncurring large investments. The previous year, it grew considerably by winning a tender to supply school canteens in Navarre. Other growth paths are also being explored through the inclusion of products that require refrigeration (which are more expensive to store) in order to cover a larger part of the demand and reach a larger number of consumers. It is a completely new initiative in Navarre that contributesto the viability of the primary sector by dignifying the work of local producers.
