Investing in Local Food

In 2008, just as the Transition Towns movement in Aotearoa was enjoying a growth spurt, I met Pete Russell. Our conversations revolved around the need for an alternative to the industrial food system and Ooooby was born. Seven years later, Ooooby is launching a crowdfunding campaign (Sep 1st) and I wanted to let you know about this opportunity to get a slice of the Ooooby pie.

 

 

Ooooby is a commons based business, which means that suppliers, customers and crew all share in the success of Ooooby.

Ooooby’s mission is to make local food convenient, affordable and fair everywhere. To do this it has developed a lean-efficient distribution model, that can scale by being replicated to serve the local food needs of any modest sized population. This social enterprise aligns well with the Transition Towns philosophy of moving from oil dependence to local resilience, and is a commons based business, which means that suppliers, customers and crew all share in its success.

We now have a lean and replicable system that has been tried and tested in four locations: Auckland, Sydney, Waikato and Fresno (Southern California). Ooooby is looking to build the team and improve operational infrastructure that can support the opening of Ooooby hubs - eight new hubs around New Zealand over the coming 18 months.

Crowdfunding has been chosen as our capital raising method, because it perfectly aligns with the philosophy of food for the people, by the people, allowing its customers, growers and crew to each have a slice of the pie.
