About the project Edit

The goal of the Rennes Consom’action Cooperative is to promote democracy, transparency, equality, health, and taste in daily consumption. The goal is to set up a democratic grocery store at the ferme des Gallets, which will connect consumers and producers.

In what ways is this project unique and creative? Edit

What if we worked to put our own on bread on the table? Every consumer member would contribute a few volunteer hours per month and in return, benefit from good local products at a low price.
What about chewing the fat? The coop is not only a place of consumption, but also and above all, a friendly place.
Even more importantly, it is a democratic grocery store—this alone is rare enough to be noteworthy.

What is the social value of this project? Edit

To give life to the magnificent ferme des Gallets area and restore the last remaining building. Facilitate encounters and use our daily consumption as a lever to eat well, make connections, have fun, and promote a more environmental and economically just consumption model.

What is the potential of this project to expand and develop? Edit

The distribution of good, mostly local, food is at the heart of this project. Internal democracy will give rise to other projects. Similar cooperatives in London and New York have developed kitchens that use unsold product or a garden. The fruits of member initiatives remain to be seen.
