At The Food Assembly, orders are made online, products are collected in person during pop-up markets organised by Hosts. “The Food Assembly is much more than a marketing platform, it creates connections,” says Hervé Pillaud, farmer-member of the National Digital Council. “The secret to success is combining communication through digital technology with passion and cheer in the community.”
More than 1,500 Hosts have embarked on the adventure. They come from different backgrounds, different regions and different careers. They all bring their personal touch to this collective project. “Each collection offers its share of knowledge, anecdotes and connections that strengthen over time,” says Sophie, Host of 6 years. “I now kiss all the grannies hello in the neighborhood,” Quentin continues. “The Food Assembly has changed my life,” concludes Corinne.
Farmers or artisans, more than 10,000 professionals have chosen The Food Assembly as a direct sales solution. “You saved my life”, confided Pascal Lecoq, duck producer, confided one day “without The Food Assembly, I would have stopped” continued Thomas Boonen, a young organic market gardener. At a time of unprecedented agricultural crisis which, in 20 years, has seen the number of farms fall by more than half, The Food Assembly offers a viable and user-friendly alternative to producers.
