Food hubs, unlimited.
Whatever your model, we support you. However you change, we're with you. We're non-profit, independent, and open-sourced. We're the software partners you've dreamed of.
OFN NZ is designed to make your local food project more viable, easier to run and more convenient for customers.
Food Hubs on the Open Food Network can choose to sell their own produce and the produce of other producers. This could be a farm, CSA or box scheme that would like to include other products within your distribution, and allow customers to easily choose their options and replacements. It could be a farmers market that wants to allow customers to pre-order online. It could be a local shop that wants to have an online presence. Or a wholesaler or procurement enterprise. Maybe you just want to start a local buyers group. The Open Food Network is flexible with a lot of configuration to suit the way you and your community want to source your food.
We're creating a service that is reliable and affordable, and this does have costs. But we also want OFN NZ to be as affordable and accessible as possible to as many groups and organisations that want to use it. OFN is a platform cooperative. This means that people who use the service pay to help cover the running costs of the platform in line with a) the value they receive from the service and b) their ability to pay. This way as OFN helps your enterprise to grow you are invited to pay to support OFN in encouraging new food enterprises.
