What is a REKO Ring?
REKO stands for ‘Fair Consumption’ and is a trade model developed in 2013 in Finland to connect local consumers and local producers.
Think of it like a weekly veg box meets farmers market. Cutting out the middle man and the guesswork for both the consumer and the producer so everyone is a winner!
- You are helping support sustainable locally sourced produce,
- Providing an ethical way to do your weekly shopping and
- Minimizing waste
- AND MOST IMPORTANT-BECOMING SELF-SUFFCIENT!
How does a REKO Work?
There are a few (Suffolk Nordic regions, where we got the idea) REKO ring groups – each one has a different collection point which will be held at a regular time and day each week for 30 minutes. WE CAN FIGURE OUT DETAILS LATER 🧐
PLEASE SEE A DESCRIPTION OF a farm share here..
WHAT IS A FARM SHARE?
Producers post what they have for sale that week in their local REKO group here on the site… The customer then orders by leaving a comment on the post. After the collection day, all the posts are deleted and the cycle repeats again.
