Direct farm-city trade: REKO Rings

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
