2 What is and where is BuonMercato Fundamental principles How it works Network Facts Organization People 2

3 What is BuonMercato? a joint initiative of public administration (Comune di Corsico) and local actors an association that promotes ethical purchasing and a sustainable lifestyle facilitates direct purchasing of commonly used goods from farmers and other producers, for people that can t create a Group (G.A.S.) supports G.A.S. and producers in logistic management 3

4 Where it is? Corsico Pop.: about 35K Area: 5.4 Km 2 Parco Agricolo Sud Area: 0.46 Km 2 BuonMercato has its operational and legal headquarter at Cabassina Park in Corsico, a small town in the outskirts of Milan, inside Parco Agricolo Sud Milano 4

5 Fundamental Principles Support of PARCO AGRICOLO SUD MILANO: We support farmers of Parco Agricolo Sud, particularly those practicing sustainable agriculture Fair Price Price of products is not imposed by the market, but defined on the basis of the real cost of production Short supply chain The direct relationship with producers guarantees the best control over the quality and ethics of product Legality Producers must not have any relationship with criminal organizations. Their employees must have a regular contract Zero Km We prefer products coming from farms and factories close to Corsico (as much as possible) Ecologically sustainable production Production must have a small ecological footprint: the agricultural methods we prefer are, in the order: biodynamic, organic, integrated pest control Transparency Producers must be open to share information about their products and production process 5

6 How it works? Each associated member places orders through an e-commerce platform Members come to BuonMercato to pick up the baskets BuonMercato staff prepares the baskets BuonMercato sends aggregate orders to producers on a weekly basis Producers deliver products to BuonMercato in Corsico 6
