Robert Pekin from Food Connect, Connecting people to farmers

Today I am talking with Robert Pekin who is the founder of Food Connect - a dynamic multi-farmer food distribution enterprise with an innovative community-based distribution system.

As a dairy farmer he felt a huge disconnection between his milk and the people drinking it.  After a series of life changing events he went on a journey that triggered a passion for creating a fairer food system for all farmers and for exploring ways to help people connect to those who grew and processed their food.

As a former organic dairy farmer and market gardener he has become known as a practical and hands on social entrepreneur working at the systems end of changing the way business can change the way that the current food system works.

Rob is a well known speaker in the Fair Food movement. He loves his blended family of four children, and his favourite foods are beer, butter and good bread.
