Research supply of local products on campus

Buying local products is good for the environment, for local producers and for ourselves. After all, these are fresh, quality products. Together with Oregional, a local cooperative of agricultural producers, and Campus & Facilities, Nijmegen School of Management is conducting research into the need and possibilities for offering local products on campus. The research focuses on the influence of lifestyle and activities on the role of food in our daily lives. And more specifically on how Radboud University employees deal with the food they buy, store, cook and eat. And how local food could fit in with their lifestyle and activities.

Gebiedscooperatie Oregional is a cooperation of farmers in the Arnhem-Nijmegen region, whom produce food in a sustainable, nature-include way. The cooperation aims at realizing a short food supply chain by bringing farmers and citizens together to create a sustainable supply of fresh produce for consumption.
