About Open Food Network [Open Food Foundation]
Open Food Network was started in Australia in 2012 by co-founders Kirsten Larsen and Serenity Hill. They knew that healthy food systems need healthy local food enterprises, and these enterprises need software tools to operate smoothly and viably. They had seen food hubs spending too much on proprietary software that couldn’t be shared and couldn’t be adapted. So the idea to create a 100% not profit and open source software tool, specifically designed for local food enterprises was born.
