The project likes to create awareness to the advantages of fair and ecologically cultivated olive oil and organic farming among consumers and tries to support producers with a sustainable cultivation by creating Producer-Consumer-Groups.
The concept of Community Supported Agriculture was first modeled in Japan when, a group of women concerned with the use of pesticides and with the increasing consumption of processed foods cooperated with local farmers to ensure the consistent supply of local, healthy, and fresh food. This food movement was known in Japan by the name teikei, meaning, “partnership” or “cooperation.”
To start the day with energy and help our body function better, we recommend taking a spoonful of extra virgin olive oil on an empty stomach, not to mention after a good breakfast.
The objective of the students is to experiment and learn about sustainability in its real application, using the example of the sustainable production and consumption (SDG 12) of olive oil in Andalusia as an example.
