True to its values, ARECO offers you a sustainable solution with a low environmental impact to limit the spread of pathogenic germs and increase the lifespan of your payment terminals.

Many stores use disinfecting wipes to clean the Payment Terminals between each customer’s visit. When used, these wipes damage the Payment terminals’ keys.

We offer a transparent, flexible PVC cover that can be attached to the terminals, and which conforms to the shape of the terminals, to facilitate their cleaning and prevent their deterioration.

This protection attaches to the back of the payment terminal. Adjustable links adapt to the terminal for a perfect fit.

The advantages:

  • Ecological: reusable protection after washing with a disinfecting solution.
  • Durable: Increases the life of the terminal by protecting the keypad from droplet spillage
  • Efficient: guaranteed cleaning thanks to the smooth surface of the protection.

Take action for eating better

ARECO continues supporting Make.org to take action for eating better

In 2019, a large national consultation focusing on “how can we enable everyone
to eat better?” was launched in France. Gathering 460,000 participants, this consultation reflects the growing demand related to healthy eating throughout the country. ARECO, a pioneer in food transition and partner of the Major Cause “Acting to Eat Better” launched by Make.org last year, continues supporting this civic platform by contributing to the development and implementation of eight actions, which aim at promoting clean eating and food sustainability on a national scale.

On February 26, 2020, and as part of the Paris International Agricultural Show, Make.org revealed the eight impactful actions resulting from the wills of citizens that will be implemented over the next two years throughout France. The announcement was made alongside ARECO at the booth of INRAE (National Research Institute for Agriculture, Food and the Environment), which is also a partner of the Major Cause “Acting to Eat Better”. Those strong awareness-raising actions reflect the growing concerns of consumers and the current social and environmental challenges, such as the fight against food waste and plastics,
the valorization of local agricultural work and products, as well as the search for meaning, taste and quality.

ARECO s'engage pour le mieux manger

In a co-construction approach with more than fifty stakeholders committed to food transition and environmental protection, including Système U, Danone, Bonduelle and Fleury Michon, ARECO joined dedicated workshops to develop the eight following impactful actions:

  1. « Agricultural and Food Heritage National Day »: enable 1 million visits to farm and smaller processing sites to reconnect the large public with the French agricultural and food heritage.
  2. « Agricultural Youth Mission »: allow 200,000 young people to assist farmers and food aid beneficiaries by structuring the various existing French systems (Universal National Service, Civic Service, etc.) around a specific sector.
  3. « Agri’Don »: offer 1 million tons of unsold agricultural products to those in greatest need.
  4. « Local Sales Platform »: sustainably increase by 40% the local sales
    of more than 50,000 agricultural producers by connecting them with private and public buyers directly to make local products available to everyone.
  5. « Less Plastic Collective »: collectively reduce the use of plastics at all stages of the food value chain by bringing together all involved stakeholders.
  6. « Easy Bulk »: multiply by 10 the number of products sold in bulk to allow consumers to shop as much as possible without any single-use packaging in their regular local supermarket.
  7. « I Learn How to Snack »: support more than 1 million young people in learning about healthy and responsible eating during a specific school period.
  8. « Season Chefs »:  promote a seasonal cuisine through a large audience TV show to change the eating habits of 15 million French people.

Supervised by Make.org, those actions supporting healthy eating and environmental protection will be implemented over the next years throughout France. ARECO will continue to provide its support, in particular by assisting the roll-out of the two actions “Less Plastic Collective” and “Easy Bulk”, which aim at reducing the use of plastics on a national scale.

Regulation for refrigerated showcases

18 December 2019

By 2020, in France, 75% of positive temperature refrigerated showcases installed in food stores will have to have doors.

This is the objective set by the agreement signed in January 2012 between the Ministry of Ecology and the Federation of Trade and Distribution Companies, to reduce the energy consumption of stores by 20 to 25%.

The closing of the refrigerated showcases results in an increase of between 2°C and 5°C in the ambient temperature of the store and therefore a faster degradation of fresh products on the showcase in terms of quality, freshness, vitamins and minerals.

ARECO fights against food waste

Since July 29 of 2019, humanity lives on credit because it has already consumed all the natural resources that the planet has to offer. This is two months earlier than 20 years ago and a three-days decline compared to 2018. By dividing food waste by two, we could postpone this date 10 days later each year.

Let’s note that 40% of the wasted food, which could have been consumed, consists of fresh fruits and vegetables (FAO source).

The products and services we design allow as many people as possible to discover fresh products and answer to the new food consumption patterns.

ARECO adopts a positive and optimistic commitment: encouraging and educating people to eat better and enjoy healthy and good products will help to preserve the environment and reduce food waste.
