I have been talking to Nick Weir (OFN UK) about setting up an instance of OFN in Israel. I would now like to take OFN to a new level. This would enable:
· Food and drink shoppers and buyers to have more detail about the farming, environmental, social and financial practices of the farmers and growers
· Producers to better understand the needs of the shoppers and buyers.
I have started to define how we could define, standardize, collect and validate the necessary data. Please see my website here
I am now looking for 1 or 2 people in the OFN global community who would be interested to explore this idea with me and help take it to the next stage. Nick suggested that I post a topic here to start a conversation with the OFN community. Please let me know if you would like to discuss this more and clear up the mechanisms that would enable a real, concrete and strong relationship between producers and consumers.
