enVie atelier is the result of a close collaboration between Colruyt, Randstad, Mc Cain, Reo veiling (auction) and enVie Atelier. It is a social enterprise that focuses on 2 important social issues:
- Food waste: enVie produces a retail line of 100% natural and vegetarian soups, made exclusively with surplus Belgian vegetables. The soups are currently available in 132 supermarkets in Belgium, and the first year of sales saved 50 tonnes of vegetables!
- Unemployment: enVie tackles long-term unemployment by recruiting a workforce of previously unemployed people and guiding them back to the regular labour market. EnVie’s objective is to employ 10 people every year, who then to on to find a sustainable job after their training.
