Health, transparency and sustainability: the winning trio of the 2020 DUX Grands Prix

In the evening of Wednesday, January 29, the DUX 2020 Grands Prix were held at Marché Bonsecours, the "great annual celebration of the food industry". “For eight years now, the Grands Prix DUX have been rewarding initiatives aimed at improving the food supply in order to help consumers eat better, live better, and nearly 500 people gathered yesterday to applaud the efforts candidates, ”said the organizers of the MAPAQ-funded event.

"[Consumers] are interested not only in what is on their plates, but also in how their food is produced, not to mention the effects of food on their health and the environment," said Ghislain Gervais, president of La Coop fédérée. For consumers looking for a new balance in their food, transparency and the quality of information on the composition and origin of their food are therefore essential. "
