Thanks for the link gleaned some info from it in giving me a way to articulate concepts that I see and want to promote
’ many alternative food networks see themselves as part of a broader social movement that strives to
promote a transition towards low-input, low-carbon agri-food systems"
I recognize what they outline " Many local and regional food networks still suffer from inefficient distribution
channels, lack of administrative support and poor infrastructure. Umbrella organisations, supported
both by public authorities and members’ fees, can step in to overcome some of these insufficiencies"
It would be good to have a collective with “buying power” to amortize costs for transport and administration costs such as online shopping carts and the like.
