Sharing economy lies on the back of increased connectivity and cooperation, it allows among other things to source buyers and sellers for goods and services.

Sharing economy has dramatically changed the way we interact. Think about the likes of Airbnb, Uber, or Social Networks, there are undeniable advantages of this decentralised system, as well as disadvantages and missed opportunities.
Can we go back to a system where there is no sharing economy? I humbly think that the answer is no.

Sharing economy lies on the back of increased connectivity and cooperation, it allows among other things to source buyers and sellers for goods and services.

We think that we can go further and use the power of the sharing economy to achieve sustainability targets. This is the economy of life.
A term that you might have noticed on our socials as our motto. The term was invented by the economist Jacques Attali and features giving purpose to people, put life at the centre and care for future generation.
This will be the subject of many future blog posts which will aim to explain our vision and how we can all contribute to a better future.

Today we will discuss biodiversity, define what it is and how we contribute to it.
Biodiversity is the variety of life in the natural world. It includes all plants, animals and microorganisms on Earth.

A healthy level of biodiversity is important for the planet. It helps to:

  • maintain the natural balance of ecosystems
  • provide food, clean water and air
  • It helps people to adapt to changing climates
  • provide medicines, support pollination of crops

When you buy products from Farmnetz, you purchase products from small-scale producers which are in their large majority certified organic or in the process of being so, thus abiding to strict sustainable criteria.

While looking at our growing offering, it’s also very clear that you are finding on Farmnetz incredible varieties of many product areas. That’s the Farmnetz experience that we want to share with you, discover incredible organic products that you would not find elsewhere.

Indeed, we are not the agro industry which operates selections on crops for their shelf life duration, resistance to transport and least of all taste. This is referred to as industrial selection.

We on the other hand, believe that as many kinds should be brought to the market place, our mission is to help and accelerate that because we all crave diversity, we are wired for that and that it is the very concept of biodiversity and eventually life.

We are convinced that biodiversity is the key to a more sustainable, efficient and resilient food system. It is essential to our survival and the survival of the planet.

We are committed to promoting and supporting biodiversity in all that we do. Help us!
