Sometimes the best way to fix the system is to start a new one.
Powering a new food system
Our open source platform enables new, ethical supply chains. Food producers can sell online, wholesalers can manage buying groups and supply produce through networks of food hubs and shops. Communities can bring together producers to create a virtual farmers’ market, building a resilient local food economy.
A global community
We believe that to build a better food system, we need to work together in new ways. We think it’s possible to create a food system with social and ecological health at its core. How we work to create the global commons that supports this is as important to us as what we create.
Helping food enterprises thrive
We are a not-for-profit organisation building what is needed to build a new food system that is fair, local, and transparent. We create resources that help community food enterprises thrive.
