Dear all, there is conversation happening on Slack that I believe should be opened to others members of this community for wider input.
As some of you know there are a small group of people trying to think develop a couple of scenarios in which a european OFN could emerge. There are different expectations that have been raised and this group is trying their best to fulfill them (building different potential optional scenarios for this future organization). One aspect that has been raised is the inclusion of trade in this organization.
So should a newly formed OFN (that represents many countries in this geography) include a service of trade between countries? As our colleagues @hhomann said " A thing I would like to discuss in our next meeting is wether or not it makes sense to think about the OFN Europe not only as an organizational body but also as an own instance (openfoodnetwork.eu or something like that) where users then can buy oranges from spain, mozarella from italy, etc."
(I will leave my own comments below and post some of the others as well).
