Kilometer 0 Program

The Program aims to strengthen both local production and consumption and the link of products with Tandil’s values and identity.


Strengthen both local production and consumption and the link of products with the values and identity of Tandil. A type of local consumption and production is encouraged and made available to citizens, which not only means caring for the environment, but also increases the general quality of life of the population by providing access to quality products.


The program is committed to a circular economy and has several lines of action. In the first place, there are a series of agro-ecological vegetable gardens distributed in different parts of the city for self-consumption and for the commercialization of their surplus. At the same time, the Municipality has had for several years a Community Food Processing Room for those entrepreneurs who produce and do not have a physical space that meets the mandatory bromatological conditions. It is currently made up of 25 enterprises and a Work Cooperative, distributed in 3 processing rooms (flour, mixed and cooperatives). This room is located inside the Municipal Market, which is a space for the exhibition and commercialization of products it works as a point of sale of the products produced in the orchards and in the processing rooms.


The involvement of the various food sectors and civil society in each of the proposals. On the one hand, the production in the agro-ecological vegetable gardens is promoted by several families and neighbourhoods of the city, as well as the productive enterprises that are elaborated in the Community Room. On the other hand, for the realization of the different events and fairs we work jointly with the productive sectors (Brewers Association of Tandil, Ice Cream Shops, rural producers, stores, the TACC-free cluster, the group of cutlers, the Italian Consulate, etc.).


Defend the traditions, the revaluation of artisanal productions, small scale, local development, self-sustainability of the community, tourism, and healthy habits, together with the consumption of fresh products, with better flavours, aromas and colours. In addition, access to quality and local products is made available to the population, both through points of sale and at events and festivals where various companies and entrepreneurs are present.
