What is REKO?

How to find a REKO network?

REKO networks operate via closed Facebook groups.

From producer to consumer, without middlemen

The REKO retail and distribution model offers customers a way of ordering products directly from the producer, without the need for middlemen. The REKO networks operate via Facebook as closed groups in which orders and deliveries are agreed on. The groups are run by volunteers, who do not receive payment for their contribution.

REKO – Fair Consumption since 2013, publication

It is now time to tell the story of REKO. How does the concept work, how did the first ring come about, what types of challenges have arisen along the way, and who are the customers?

In the publication REKO – Fair Consumption since 2013 you can read all about what REKO is today and what to do if you want to start a new ring. We also tell the story of Thomas Snellman, an organic farmer from the village of Karby, Finland, who put Pedersöre on the world map. REKO rings are nowadays a valued concept enabling producers to sell their products directly to consumers – without bureaucracy, middlemen, and lengthy transports.

REKO was launched precisely at the right time and successfully responded to changing consumer behaviour and desire to purchase locally produced, clean food. Download the book: REKO Fair consumption since 2013, PDF 4,3 MB
