La Ruche qui dit Oui! is a digital platform connecting local producers and local consumers to short the loop of food distribution, with the aim in fostering a more fair economy and sustainable society. It is a prime example of an innovative concept of collaborative consumption.
The Food Assembly team developing our platform and coordinating the network now comprises over 80 people in various cities including London, Paris, Madrid, Berlin, Brussels, Barcelona and Turin. The Food Assembly combines cultures of social entrepreneurship and digital innovation to offer a single model for start-ups with a high social impact. Each of the 700 Assemblies can promote projects independently while taking a collective approach. All these local initiatives sketch out the shape of a new economy that is fairer and more collaborative. We are working alongside them, and with that same energy, to nurture our network as it grows and progresses.
Overall, La Ruche qui dit Oui! is a project that reconnects people with their food. This vision focuses on valuing local producer and supporting the development of a connected economy.
