The Open Food Network

Where: 

UK-wide

What they are most proud of:

The sense of empowerment that community groups achieve when they build their own food retail and distribution system from the ground up.

Their model:

The Open Food Network (OFN) is a growing network of small to medium and community food enterprises, independent producers, retailers and distributors, dedicated to building a stronger, fairer food system in the UK.

We believe that by working together, sharing skills, ideas and resources, we can provide good, nutritious, affordable food to everyone. Food is the ultimate connector. Through food, together we can create real change and Food Sovereignty!

To achieve this, OFN UK develops and hosts a comprehensive online toolset for local food. You can customise your own online shopfront (hosted on our secure servers), flexibly take orders, make deliveries, collect payments, connect with producers, distributors and other shopfronts, grow customers, share ideas and develop your enterprise.

As a network we decide the features we want, and we develop them in collaboration with the OFN instances around the world.

For more information: openfoodnetwork.org.uk

What we love about them:

The sense of empowerment that community groups achieve when they build their own food retail and distribution system from the ground up.
