Ibiza Preservation Foundation
What is this cause?
A study carried out by Ibiza Preservation Fund in 2017 indicated that there is potential to increase the supply of local produce by creating additional demand. IBIZA PRODUCE is the programme through which we can encourage consumption of local produce, support farmers and thereby ensure the preservation of the island’s landscapes.
To enable this we need to create a platform through which:
– producers can access more markets
– chefs are connected to farms to buy directly from the source
– customers are made aware of where to buy or consume authentic local produce
– new producers are supported to set up agricultural and food businesses in Ibiza
– local schools and hospitals commit to buy local produce.
If you enjoy Ibiza’s beautiful landscapes, then we encourage you to support the local farmers by buying Ibiza produce. Across the island, people are creating healthy, vibrant, sustainable, and local food systems. In order to sustain these systems we, the consumers, need to recognise the value of fresh local produce and be willing to invest in good food.
By supporting IBIZA PRODUCE, you will be supporting farmers, producers, and your own environment.
The aims of the programme are:
– to increase local consumption of fresh produce from the current 2% to at least 4% in the first year
– to increase the area of farmed land
– to increase the supply of locally processed food & beverage products
The funds raised will be used to create and manage this initiative, which will operate through an online platform as well as a series of meetings and workshops with the stakeholders of the food and agricultural sectors of Ibiza.
