We can support you to bring sustainable and resilient food systems to life in your city-region, through strategies and in practices.
Our services are available to you in collaboration with RUAF and Let Us. Each collaborator has its field of expertise and jointly we offer years of experience in various aspects of urban food systems: multi-actor partnership facilitation, food policy development, international city networks, inclusive business models, value chain development, public procurement, food retail… We always look for the best value for the customer and select the expert that is best suited for the assignment.
Through our extensive, combined network of cities and experts around the world, we are constantly up-to-date and involved in new developments. Not only can we count on local experts, our active network offers learning and exchange opportunities for all participating actors.
We are deeply convinced that systems change will come from inclusive transition processes, in which every actor is involved. In all our business, policy and learning activities we use co-creation methodologies to make sure that there is ownership on different levels, making true change possible.

The Global Partnership on Sustainable Urban Agriculture and Food Systems (RUAF) is a consortium of expert institutions with a recognised track record in urban and peri-urban agriculture and urban food system solutions. We bring together cities, research institutions and civil society and advise on multi-stakeholder policy and planning.
We aim for localised systems of production and consumption, resilient urban food systems and a strengthened role of cities in food policy governance. The RUAF GP Secretariat coordinates the input of RUAF and its wide network of RUAF Associates.
Rikolto’s experts in inclusive and sustainable agri-food systems are always on the look-out for new ways of collaboration and systemic solutions. We build on over 40 years of experience as an INGO in partnering with farmer organisations, businesses, the public sector and food chain stakeholders worldwide.
All of the proceeds of our consultancy services are invested in Rikolto’s social purpose.
Let Us has extensive experience from the practitioner’s side. With experiences in leading roles in sustainability in a large food retailer and the internationally renowned Ghent Urban Food Strategy.
Let Us combines deep knowledge of the potential roles of a municipality and how to experiment with that role with a broad experience in food councils and co-creative ways of working with different types of stakeholders and citizen involvement.
