We are always keen to work with people who share the same desires for a local food network and are please to announce the collaboration between OFN and https://freshaslocal.com Together we look forward to expanding the connection of local producers with local customers.

“The coronavirus crisis has shown how vulnerable we all are, and how important it is to restore the balance between human activity and nature. At the heart of this collaboration are the desire for a new and better balance of nature, food systems and biodiversity; to protect our people’s health and well-being, and at the same time to increase NZ’s competitiveness and resilience. These strategies are a crucial part of the great transition we are embarking upon.” – adapted from a quote by Frans Timmermans, Executive Vice-President of the European Commission.
