The Social Enterprise that supports, educates and promotes the Global fresh food industry to help it thrive and grow faster
Let's grow together...

Welcome to the first Social Enterprise for the Global Fresh Food industry

We’re on a mission to re-connect people with their relationship with food. Where it comes from, how it’s grown, the people who make that happen, and the exciting stories surrounding this.  Globally….

A healthy, thriving, sustainable fresh food sector is central to that mission.

How will we do this?

Engaging with a wide range of voices across the global fresh food supply chain, to identify the challenges that gather around important issues, identify areas of consensus, and explore opportunities, collaborations & partnerships that can help drive solutions, involving the consumer along the journey.

Our mission

We facilitate collaboration to foster a global community with a common purpose; to support growth of fresh food consumption, to benefit the health of people and planet
Through the power of story telling we educate Trade & Consumer audiences, to inspire, excite and inform
We help promote awareness of fresh food to encourage greater consumption; which helps business, the environment and our collective health
