Sociaago's mission is to give small local producers access to the Brussels market by optimising the distribution and marketing of their products.
Founded in 2020 by Olivier Van Cauwelaert, Sociaago is a cooperative focused on creating logistics hubs for small producers.
Indeed, the latter, making the effort to adapt their practices to respect biodiversity, find it very difficult to access the Brussels market due to their small offers and a lack of time and resources to take care of logistics.
Thus, Sociaago's food logistics hub brings together the products of small Brussels producers in one place and promotes the circular economy and short circuits. Distributors, restaurateurs and individuals can then benefit from a network of producers grouped together within the cooperative, thus facilitating order management and logistics.
In concrete terms, Sociaago therefore has two areas of activity. The main one, Third Party Logistic (3PL), consists of managing the control, storage, preparation and delivery of products from different producers to companies or individuals. As for the second activity of the cooperative, it is communication, in order to highlight local producers to the points of sale.
And because Sociaago is driven by the desire to give everyone a chance to develop their talents, the cooperative was keen to outsource the management of orders to Manufast, a company employing people with disabilities.

A taste of the team
Joining Sociaago means joining a young company in full swing. Indeed, within 2 years, the team will move to a warehouse at least 4 times larger. Thus, the potential for development within the cooperative is immense.
Working in this cooperative also means being in contact with impact players, such as Manufast, Supersec, Eat's Local,...
At Sociaago, you will also have a great deal of freedom in your management of work and logistics activities. In addition, the initial project leaders are always available and open to new ideas. Communication is transparent.
Finally, Sociaago regularly organises visits to its warehouse as well as open days. It was an opportunity for the team members to proudly present their work to make the food of the people of Brussels healthier and more sustainable!
