Software Platform

Our open source online platform for selling agricultural products enables new, ethical supply chains.

Software designed for food

The Open Food Network software platform allows farmers to sell farm products online, at a price that works for them. It can be embedded in your own website, or hosted on ours. It has been built specifically for agri products selling online, so it can handle tricky measures or stock levels that only food has – a dozen eggs, a bunch of parsley, and a whole chicken that varies in weight, anyone?

It’s a great shopfront to sell food through farmers marketplace as an individual enterprise, but where it really gets exciting is when there’s a community of farmers working together, community supported agriculture.

Collaboration made easy

Food producers can create an online shop – farmers marketplace, collect payments, and sell through other shops on the platform – online platform for farmers to sell their produces. Wholesalers can integrate with existing systems – community supported agriculture, manage buying groups and supply your produce through national or regional networks of food hubs and shops. Communities can bring together producers in your area to create a virtual farmers’ market, building a resilient local food economy, community can sell agricultural products online.

People have used the power of this platform to create food collectives, to make community supported agriculture, manage food hub stock, or to take their farmers’ marketplace online with pre-purchases to give stallholders more secure sales.

Open source for a better food system

And what’s just as important as the software itself, are the values that underpin it. If you’re trying to build a new food system – as a farmer, farmers’ marketplace, or food hub – then why would you choose software that isn’t also contributing to a fairer food system? By working collectively rather than competitively, we share the costs of developing new software, and we ensure that our project is more resilient than the many other proprietary models that have fallen over since we started!
