Our mission is to promote

  • responsible consumption by selling local, regional, organic, fair-trade and unpackaged products

  • a local place open to all

Our vision is to

  • create a social and solidarity-based space

  • focus on ecological principles
  • place the human being at the centre

Our object (according to the articles of association):

  • is to be a cooperative society, open to all,
  • with the main object (Art. 2.1 of the Articles of Association) of setting up and running one or more solidarity grocery shops and operating one or more alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks outlets with catering.
  • This object (Art. 2.1 of the Articles of Association) is in line with the aim of supporting and promoting a social and solidarity-based economy, which is essentially based on setting up partnerships with organisations that are active in promoting social, ecological and economic activities - while at the same time favouring a community-based and participatory approach.
  • As an accredited cooperative & SIS (social impact company), with 100% social shares, any profits are paid into the statutory reserve, which is unavailable to cooperative members and is intended to strengthen and develop EpiSol's corporate purpose (Art. 9.4.1 of the Articles of Association).


Object & Social Impact (provided for in the Articles of Association and the SIS (Societal Impact Society) Agreement)

The following performance indicators will be taken into account (Art. 2.4. of the Articles of Association) when assessing the performance targets relating to the achievement of the purpose & social impact, or the distribution of "profits":

  • number of customers benefiting from the Sanem Social Office and the % of turnover (without profit) linked to the beneficiaries of the Social Office
  • local/registered, organic and/or fairtrade products and products from sheltered workshops and initiatives for socio-professional reintegration & voluntary work
  • number of jobs, SVO volunteers, students/trainees on vocational training courses
  • number of volunteers
  • and number of socio-cultural and -educational events in a spirit of diversity / cohesion / social inclusion
