The circular campaign included picking the fruit from the trees, developing new products, presenting them to the community and re-using the waste.
The team picked the oranges for the campaign at the local Quinta do Chinco (“Chinco farm”) community gardens of Castelo Branco.
At the CATAA Pilot Units, the magic began. The team produced three exciting products: orange flour that can be used to flavor cakes or pancakes throughout the year, crispy and healthy snacks with dehydrated orange and orange compote to sweeten our days. To learn more about the product, they also produced a flyer with orange-related curiosities, health properties and recipes.
The final products were offered to the public at the municipal market.
The organic waste of the products – the orange skin – was sent back to the Quinta do Chinco community gardens for composting and helping feed the soil.
