About Us

We are a group of talented, highly capable and driven people that believe everyone has the right to own and participate in the growing, making and distribution of healthy, nutritious and affordable food. 

To realise this goal, we have developed a three-part organisational structure. FoodCircle is the innovation company catalysing FoodVillages, while FoodLands is the trust that owns land and infrastructure for FoodVillage, which is the distributing cooperative responsible for people and operations.
