Färm is a cooperative of sustainable food stores offering, amongst various other things, organic, local and fair trade goods produced by small family businesses… However, Färm is much more than a simple organic store. It is a cooperative that unites producers and consumers to ensure that the route taken by food is as short as possible. Hence, the collaboration between these two parties allows our society to feed itself in the most sustainable way possible.

 

Alexis Descampe, CEO of Färm.coöp explains: “Our vision is to make food a link between people again. We want to use food as a vehicle for meaning in society, which we have lost in recent decades, since the agro-food industry has become a financial industry and is no longer the breeding ground of human society.”
