Purpose and goal
Solutions are identified for development of ´the farming foodbazar´ in Landskrona, based on industrial efficiency, modularity, and symbiosis and furthermore consumer focus and local entrepreneurship. The purpose is to form a group of actors, who could develop, support and realize the idea. Built capacity is leveraged to export knowhow to cities with similar need. Most cities, except from the most expansive, have a potential to harbour one/several foodbazars, locally adapted. In a few years the food bazars can employ up to thousand people in Sweden. Executed activities are the goals.
Results and expected effects
The result of the initial phase is to gather a heterogeneous group of partners, with described needs and conditions well described to move forward to a consortia cooperation. Landskrona has unique conditions with cooperation, reinforced with worldclass knowhow from SE, DK, NL. The impact of established foodbazars are well aligned with Sustainable and Attractive Cities, incl green advantages, less resources spent, job growth, social integration, resilience and a more human city.
Approach and implementation
Our guideline is to utilize existing resources, reinforced with market driven R&D and internationally competitive knowledge and technology from key companies. ´We do not reinvent the wheel we get it to move faster.´ We will capture consumer needs, develop prototype modules in iterations and utilise open innovation from DOM supporters.
