Matkollektivet

BY AGNES TVINNEREIM
@ VOL 6 ON JUN 03, 2016

Matkollektivet - can consumers change our region? Matkollektivet started in a neighbourhood at Landås, Bergen in 2014. The idea was that a critical number of customers (surprisingly few) could supply West Norways small scale farmers with a secure way of selling their produce. That way they could attempt to change the negative history in local agriculture, at the same time as the citys consumers got home delivery of food they would not have in another way. A win - win situation. Matkollektivet is today working to become a strong company, that gives back to society in so many ways. Agnes Tvinnereim explains.
