We support the label “Hauts-de-France, European Region of Gastronomy 2023” and we commit ourselves to


Carrying high the culinary heritage of Hauts-de-France, our regional products, our know-how, but also the spirit of Hauts-de-France, that of sharing, generosity, conviviality and hospitality.


To be an actor in the transformation of the food sector towards greater sustainability: to promote the use of local and seasonal quality products, to ensure better waste management, to limit the carbon footprint, to reduce food waste and disposable products, to prefer sustainable alternatives to plastics and to meet the challenges of healthy nutrition.


Disseminate to all our teams the challenges, activities and ambition of this approach.
Involve our audiences (suppliers, employees, partners, customers, visitors, media, institutions…) in our approach to “Hauts-de-France, European Region of Gastronomy 2023”.


Endorse and promote the objectives of “Hauts-de-France, European Gastronomy Region 2023” in our activities and events: Virtuous production; added value and employment; committed network; well-being; education; sustainable tourism.
Ensure the visibility of the “Hauts-de-France, European Food Region 2023” logo on all our communication materials in French and English.
Participate in events and/or propose an event in 2023.


Guarantee that the “Hauts-de-France, European gastronomy region 2023” logo will not be used on products or to promote products and actors that are not regional, or activities that are not related to regional gastronomy.

The spirit of the label, a constant process of progress
