On the Opal Coast, in Le Touquet-Paris-Plage, on the premises of the Campus headquarters, the establishment of a Foodlab branch will serve as a demonstration site to enable the public, both learners and employees in this area, to benefit not only from high value-added training more easily, but also to enhance the value of the sector by offering a high quality reception.
In the Lens-Liévin area, the recent development of tourism with the arrival of the Louvre-Lens and the recognition of the mining heritage as a UNESCO world heritage site has generated new tourist flows and made the agglomeration an essential regional stopover. This is why training is a key issue. Increasing skills in the hotel industry and training is a major challenge.
It is therefore natural that the 11/19 site, located at the heart of a tourist hub in the making and a political district of the city, was designated as the location for a Foodlab branch, an innovative technical platform for culinary design and services. The regional economic actors (OPCO, professional branches and companies), local authorities and State services support this project financially and humanely.
The role of the Campus is very ambitious in that it aims to promote the sector among the most vulnerable and unemployed people. This technical platform will also be a place to promote and carry out actions in favor of “better eating” and “better living”, and to raise awareness of the challenges of healthy nutrition.
