FROM THE BEGINNING
Our mission is to create a fair and sustainable food system.
At Farmed Today, we identified the key problem of the current food system as following flaws:
• Small-scale food producers' margins are too small to be able to operate effectively
• We, as consumers, have only limited access and variety of sustainable and local food
• The amount of wasted foods is too high, resulting in unnecessary pressure on the society and the environment
CREATING A COMMUNITY
Therefore, with Farmed Today, we are creating a community that wants to make a positive impact on their environment and believes that health is based on good food and nutrition.
Founded in 2017, Farmed Today values transparency and fairness towards producers and consumers. We strive for global biodiversity and sustainably farmed produce.
The team currently operates from Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
