On 17 November, Portugal hosted the finals of REGIOSTARS AWARDS, an EU (Europe in my Region) organisation. In 2016, our FOODMET was selected for these Awards. On the occasion of the 15th anniversary, all participating ERDF projects of the past years were again put in competition with each other. FOODMET was there but did not emerge as the winner. This honour went to the "Citadella" restoration project on the Maltese island of Gozo. Nevertheless, our food hall enjoys quite some international prestige, because of its modern building concept and thanks to the urban farm set up on the FOODMET roof. Our CEO, Elke Tiebout, was allowed on stage with all the other laureates, where they were honoured by European Commissioner Elisa Ferreira. Read more...
Have you heard the news? Our project FOODMET has been selected to participate in the 15th anniversary edition of the Regiostars by Europe in my Region. As you may remember, in 2016 we participated in this European initiative, which has become over the years Europe's label of excellence for EU-funded projects. This year we are joining the competition again and YOU can help us! Vote for our project on www.regiostarsawards.eu. You have until 15 November to cast your vote.
On Tuesday, September 6, we had the honor to welcome a European Commissioner at Abattoir. Mrs. Elisa Ferreira, responsible for European Cohesion and Reforms, came to see how Abattoir manages the ERDF funds made available to it by Europe and the Brussels-Capital Region. Together with the Mayor of Anderlecht, Mr. Fabrice Cumps, and the Secretary of State of Brussels, Mr. Pascal Smet, we visited the FOODMET and the urban farm BIGH on the roof of the food hall. At the same time, we could show them the construction site where the next ERDF project, the Manufakture, is being built. Commissioner Ferreira was extremely grateful and praised all these projects and achievements, a great example of how the public and private sectors can work together to get things done. The Brussels Region's administrations were justifiably proud to be able to show these and other Brussels projects to the European Commissioner.
On Sunday 18 September, Brussels will make way for the car-free Sunday. In very exceptional cases, between 9 a.m. and 7 p.m., you will encounter motorised vehicles on the public highway. Our Sunday market will be open as usual but can only be reached on foot, by bike, by taxi or by public transport (bus or metro). Clemenceau and Delacroix are the closest metro stations (lines 2 and 6). There are interchange car parks on the outskirts of the city. Traders who travel by car must have a pass (maximum speed 30 km/h). As a resident of Brussels, you must apply for this pass to your own commune or, if you do not live in Brussels, to the commune of Anderlecht (tel 0800/91070). Normally, together with the police Zone South, we organise a guided departure towards the Ring Road in the afternoon. More information about the car-free Sunday and all aspects of mobility can be found here
