‘Cowing Out’ is a French initiative to create products that are sourced locally. The concept is rooted in the philosophy of putting people at the centre of the ecosystem. Its founder, Gregory Pastor, has over 15 years of experience in the energy industry. Gregory has created multiple engagements and has put people at the heart of his enterprise.
Gregory Pastor was originally trained as an engineer, but chose to focus on the dairy industry. After starting his own dairy company, he saw an opportunity to develop a local distribution network for dairy products. His company purchases milk from small local farms and then processes it into a range of products. The products are then sold through a network of partner sales outlets. The company has a solidarity economy basis, paying farmers a fair price for their milk. The company also makes use of the circular economy to produce their containers.
