L’Épicerie Autrement – participative grocery store in Tramelan (BE)
LOCAL – ORGANIC – BULK: we offer, you choose !
This is the motto of the Épicerie Autrement located in Tramelan, in the Bernese Jura, open in November 2019. L’Épicerie Autrement is a participative grocery store (cooperative society), born from a citizen’s initiative, which offers a wide range of food and non-food products.
The aim of this project is to give people the opportunity to consume “differently” and to promote an assortment of locally produced products that are respectful of life, sold in bulk and guarantee fair prices for both customers and producers.
The grocery store wishes to offer consumers a wide range of products according to these three criteria: local, organic and bulk. Consumers can then choose their products according to their own criteria. The products come from more than forty suppliers located within a supply radius of less than 30 km. As far as possible, the products are organically produced and delivered without packaging.
