Direct Food Chains Ready to Go Fair and Green!

We believe agro-ecology and direct food chains are key to heal our current economic system and unsustainable ways of food production. By working closely with nature and chain actors we can build a resilient and fair future together!

Our main focus is on bean to bar chocolate.

When it comes to food, our demands are high. We want good quality food, sustainably grown, locally sourced, fairly traded and if possible, a bit affordable. But reality is tough: the social and ecological impact of food production remains unabatedly high, while transparency and accountability are clearly insufficient to change course. Blockchain technology is increasingly being proposed to bring about trust and transparency to arrive at a fair and sustainable food system. But does this hypothesis hold?
What other options could we imagine to restore trust and design participatory models in the food system? This article by CCB’s Margo Potma dives into the case of Costa Rican cacao to find out.

How It Works

In a direct food chain all its links need to connect and function well. We provide services to get this done!
