A pioneer of healthy and local recipes
Gabriel Levionnois, owner of the restaurant « Au p’tit Café », in Noumea, is committed to the use of local products to create healthy, creative dishes. As Co-President of Cap Agro NC, he will be at the centre of OCTA Innovation’s pilot project for New Caledonia that aims to boost the income of local farmers, expand the agri-food industry and promote a healthy eating culture.
Gabriel will work with three school canteens in three provinces of New Caledonia to create and test the new healthy recipes based on local ingredients that can eventually be rolled out in other establishments.
He has worked as both a chef and trainer of chefs and has been closely involved with initiatives to improve the competitiveness of the local food industry and develop agri-food companies in New Caledonia.
