A journey on collecting tastes and flavours from small scale producers in central Greece
Food products in the heart of Greece: The opportunities & the challenges
"Delfini" is a local organic store in Kamena Vourla in central Greece that has been supported and offer support to local small scale farmers.
Since 2013 we work closely with local producers and help them by offering a place in Delfini's shelves.
We have learned a lot from that close relationship. We have learned about farming as well as all the challenges the farmers in central Greece face!
Building a local farmers Network
By learning from each other, by identifying the needs and by trying to cope with the challenges, "Delfini" helped local farmers to build a network.
Expanding the team
Working with Marcus and social entrepreneurs from all over Europe we decided to try develop innovative solutions in order to help the local farmers.
The team decided to collect food goodies from our local farmers network and sell Christmas hampers to supporters in the UK through a crowdfunding campaign
The crowdfunding campaign
From September to December we run a succesful crowdfunding campaign with christmas Hampers (=our OriginBox).
12,087 euro collected in 42 days and 1548 products from small scale local farmers from the heart of Greece were collected and delivered to friends and supporters in the UK.
