[May 18 @ 15h] Business models to make good food accessible to vulnerable groups

The partners in the Robin Food project showcase the models used to make healthy food affordable for vulnerable groups. What difficulties do they face to get access to healthy food? How can we offer opportunities to people with a distance to the regular job market in the processing of these products? How can retailers and schools catalyze our efforts? We present examples from Belgium, The Netherlands and Spain.
