Mapping process to identify suppliers and interested buyers of regional food

18 August 2020 - Published by Hein Braaksma
In the first phase of the REFRAME project, the district of Wesermarsch (Germany) made a mapping of supply and demand of regionally produced food. The aim was to get an overview of available suppliers and interested buyers of regional food products, in order to be able to do a proper project planning.

Initially, the district of Wesermarsch was defined as the region to study. Due to the higher purchasing power in the neighboring counties Oldenburg and Bremen, these regions were also included. Another reason for including a larger geographical area in the study was the limited product range in Wesermarsch (predominantly milk and meat production) and the small number of food producing companies that market their products themselves.
