PROJECT OVERVIEW
The project has been initiated by a private organization.
In brief, capsule ‘VersVoko’ is a group of consumers – a kind of cooperative – that buys food and fresh produce directly from local farmers without going through a wholesaler. Not all produce comes from certified organic farmers, link but the food sourced is as sustainable as possible. A VersVoko is being set up in Amsterdam, hospital modelled on successful experiences across Belgium.
The project “VersVoko” is developed by Didi van Dijk with less than 10 people, of which around 70% being volunteers.

LOCATION
The project takes shape in multiple locations of the city such as offices/commercial spaces

PROJECT DESCRIPTION
The project is focused on the development of community-based programmes and the co-creation of food activities. At the moment, we work with locals.
In particular, we concentrate on distribution

THE PROJECT AND ITS IMPLEMENTATION. PROBLEMS, NEEDS AND SOLUTIONS
In the development of the project, we encountered implementation problems, such as lack of time, lack of money, difficulty in finding members.

We did not secure political support.
During the implementation, we did not face any regulatory barriers.
From the economic point of view, the project is mostly sustainable. In particular, we benefit from public funds from the national level.
In order to develop, we will need people/resources, improved visibility, online platform for local food initiatives.
