Within the framework of the project “Tools for the transition to Territorialized Food Systems (SAT)”, is presented this publication held by CERAI with the MCAF collaboration, in which 100 local and sustainable agrifood initiatives in Spanish territory have been identified and systematized and which are working on approach to Food Sovereignty, Social and Solidarity Economy and Ecofeminism.
These are initiatives that work from the local level in the transformation of the food system towards a more sustainable model at the environmental, social and economic level; who undertake to give priority to proximity, but also to diversification; that are fair to all parties, who seek to network with their territory and who care for the people who are part of it.
The 16 initiatives that participated in this research represent different sectors of the agrifood chain and different territories of the Spanish State: El Colletero, L’Olivera, Milhulloa, La Ojinegra, Cuinatur, ACTYVA, Lezaun Wineries, DeSpelta, Germinando, the corporation fishermen from Gandia, ME Ecològic de Mallorca, Instituto Despensa Natura and La Entreverá, La Ecomarca, Maskilu Kontserbera, Ramats al Bosc and Subbética Ecológica.
The document contains many links and references to other publications, with a multitude of tools and resources, to serve as practical support. Likewise, it is intended to be a useful document for entities and administrations that want to support this sector, so that they understand what is necessary when they are on the active side of the agrifood chain.
The launch of this publication concludes more than two years of intense work within the framework of the Tools for the transition to territorialized food systems (SAT) project, funded by the Daniel and Nina Carasso Foundation, and led by CERAI in collaboration with the Mediterranean Citizens’ Assembly Foundation (FACM), Mensa Civica and the French organization RESOLIS.
