Food, unincorporated.

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 by making it easy and efficient. Food producers can sell online, wholesalers can manage buying groups and supply through networks of food hubs and shops. Communities can bring together producers to create a virtual farmers’ market, building a resilient local food economy.

Helping food enterprises thrive

We are a not-for-profit organisation building what is needed to create a new food system that is fair, local, and transparent. We produce resources and run events and projects that help community food enterprises thrive.

A resilient 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 is as important to us as what we create, which is why we create open source products and a resilient community.
