I am coordinating Rikolto's International Food Smart Cities programme which supports the transition to sustainable food systems in 9 cities around the globe. We do so by facilitating inclusive business models that ensure a fair deal for all actors in the chain and by building bridges across food systems actors to build a more enabling environment for healthy food for all. Previously, I worked in Vietnam as Programme Development Advisor for Rikolto. I have an MSc in Environmental Sustainability from the University of Edinburgh and an MA in international relations.

Hi Justin Varney I very much enjoyed reading your contribution! I'm curious to hear if you've already started working on the development of a digital food chain marketplace for SMEs to incentivize local food procurement. I'm really interested in short chains & local food distribution platform and would like to hear how things are going in Birmingham. Good luck with the refinement phase of your proposal!
Dear Sprouting Farms , thank you for a very inspiring vision, I very much enjoyed reading it ! In your full vision, you describe a new model of " after-school ready-to-eat meals" for families short on time. The description seems to indicate that the model is currently being piloted. I'm curious about the results of such a programme. Has such an initiative already managed to become a viable business? Do you have any documentation available on the topic? Or a link to more information? Good luck with the refinement phase! Charlotte from the Citizens in Quito transform their food environment to ensure access to healthy and nutritious food team
