FOOD SYSTEM PROGRAMME

As ORIBI Village, we believe that social entrepreneurs can help to build a more productive, efficient, inclusive, sustainable, transparent, and resilient food system by addressing three challenges: operational excellence, supply chain orchestration, and transparency.

This is why we designed the first tailor-made incubation programme supporting entrepreneurs, organizations & innovators working towards a sustainable & equitable food system.
