One of the speakers in this film, Maria, has come to the UK twice to discuss the big success of REKO circles, which connect growers to urban consumers via place-specific Facebook pages, so that producers can advertise their products, sell in advance and bring goods to a specific place in the city once a week- a supermarket car park seems a popular option- meaning guaranteed sales and not having to stand on a market stall for an entire day. With the demise of Food Assembly, could this be an option for the GM region?
- Greater Manchester needs this NOW
- Hmm, unsure if would work in GM…need more info
- This sounds like a rubbish idea
