The project “Eco-restaurateur, pour une alimentation durable” (Eco-“food and Beverage worker”, for sustainable nutrition) aims at giving an answer to the competence needs that are emerging in the sector and to the strongly growth of sustainable food, in terms of eco and local food. It has also the purpose, through the most rigorous ECVET tools, of connecting the learning outcomes to the labour market.
Thus, competence profiles, training material repertories and standards, and an evaluation system are developed in close contact with the economic stakeholders
Food usually travels on the average 1500 km before arriving to the table of the European consumer.
On the opposite side to this, to the practices of intensive agriculture, to the mass distribution or to environmental concerns too, a global and profound movement is developing around food and agriculture to advocate sustainable practices for production and consumption of quality products (in terms of health and taste).
Projects are being developed all around Europe, both formal and informal, involving citizens, associations, enterprises, territorial groups, public authorities, etc., from production to consume.
Nevertheless, this sector, which can offer many sustainable and rewarding jobs (especially for low-qualified people), implies a strong need for training.
There have been shortcomings in the development of training provision, difficulties in the access to vulnerable groups and weaknesses in the promotion of healthy and sustainable eating habits.
The Eco-restaurateur project seeks to work on eco-restaurant certification at EU level in order to:
support the design of training offers
facilitate the access of vulnerable groups (tools and teaching materials developed having key skills in mind)
disseminate good practices in food habits (dissemination of resources to a wide public)

This project has been funded with support from the European Commission.
