Short description: Producing food is costly and large production volumes are required to achieve profitability, which makes it difficult for locally produced food to reach the market. The challenge is to develop a solution that enables purchase in small volumes from local food producers.
Market potential: In Sweden, for example, the number of local food producers are numerous, tens of thousands. The demand for buying locally is bigger than supply, and the demand is constantly growing.
Timing: Solutions are welcome as soon as they are ready.
Desired result: Proof of concept, working prototypes in pilot studies, further development with food producers as interested stakeholders.
