A pilot project in Göteborg
with HSB LIVING LAB
Experimenting with group orders
Hej, HSB Living Lab!
We are so excited to be part of a pilot with you.
Please let us introduce ourselves (insta).
We are a group of individuals living in Sweden with a passion for genuine food.
As you know, the supply chain makes it easier to buy mass-produced goods rather than healthy, small-scale, sustainably-produced or local items.
To make it easier for the small suppliers that we want to support, we started to experiment with…
- one person makes an order on behalf of a group of individuals,
- the “members” of the group pay the “group admin” and collect their order in an agreed location. It works best with neighbours, colleagues, friends…
The immediate benefit for the supplier is a more sustainable business : one order means one delivery, one payment – business becomes more affordable. It adds a dimension of “collective transport” into the supply chain.
The individuals taking part in the group order can benefit by having easier access to suppliers they love or they want to support. We also experience fun, social impact, like bonding within the group, through tasting, sharing tips, trial and error. Trial and errors, as it turns out 😉
CHOOSE YOUR SUPPLIERS
You probably know super suppliers that you love or support – we’d love to add them to a list that you can order from.
You can keep track of the orders on a page just for you.
If you agree we can also send emails to you – a newsletter with that information.
On this page you will find links to “pools”, which is what we call a group order. The pool will show you what you can order – you choose. The “pool rules” will give you details (when, where, who, how).
“Joining the pool” makes you a pool member – you can create an order. Explanation here.
BEFORE WE START…
DO NOT EXPECT… a webshop. One person (the “group admin”) will need to coordinate order and delivery with a supplier, as well as payment. Actually, some of our suppliers have great webshops, which makes the process all the more easier.
DO EXPECT… alternative products at a fair price, lower logistics costs, more interaction with the people around you, new food experiences.
AND … ACTION!
If you want to take part in this, contact us. Let us know if you want to take part in the organisation, as a delivery support (a delivery is made to you, and other members of the group collect from you).
