Approlocal is an online ordering site to promote short-distance and local food service circuits. The site was developed by the Chamber of Agriculture of Hauts-de-France.

On the buyers’ side, the site allows to:

  • Order directly from producers who can deliver
  • Receive alerts when the order is validated, when a new product is added to the catalog
  • Extract order statistics
  • Take advantage of events to meet new suppliers

On the supplier side, the site allows you to:

  • Professionalize the producers thanks to the automatic edition of purchase orders, delivery notes, invoices
  • Manage a private area to create catalog, manage orders
  • Manage a list of buyers to select according to your delivery criteria
  • Telephone assistance from Monday to Friday to optimize its use

In addition to managing the tool, the chambers of agriculture provide support, training, and individual and collective contact between buyers and suppliers in the food service industry.

What are the targets?

Collective catering, commercial catering, local suppliers
