What is it all about?
The idea behind the REKO local food groups is quite simple: The consumer buys products directly from the producers without any go-betweens. REKO specializes in using social media in order to organize the cooperation and communication between consumers and farmers. The concept is free of charge for everyone and requires only a minimum of organization. The main rules are:
- Only local products from farmers (producers) are delivered to the consumer without intermediary merchants
- The products are pre-ordered and delivered to the meeting point, where they are picked up by the consumers
- Same time, same place … once a week
Why it is a Best Practice
It´s a modern type of Farmers market. Consumer and producers come together and cooperate around a common goal , i.e. a Food Assambly.
