Survey for Local Food Networks

Many local food producers in the Baltic Sea countries are small family businesses for whom the arrangement of sales and logistics are both time-consuming and expensive. Because of that 10 partner countries in Baltic Sea Area are aiming to work out a viable business model to help regional food networks in distribution of local food products to cafés, restaurants, hotels and rural tourism businesses in a more efficient and cost-effective way.

This survey is launched for mapping the experience and capacity of local food networks and distributors in order to identify existing successful cooperation models and supply chains in Baltic Sea area. Based on the results of this survey efficient local food distribution model will be prepared for testing.

The survey is organized in the framework of the cooperation project “Baltic Sea Food” using the support of the Interreg Baltic Sea Region Programme.
