About this coop:

We are a mobile food stand that sells the best fries ever in 'Fries Country'. We aim to promote sustainable food production and consumption by offering premium quality street food at parties, events and festivals. Our food is vegetarian, organic, as locally sourced as possible, etc. Our second strategic goal is to create as many jobs as possible for the otherwise jobless. We do this by replacing industrial, fossil fuel intensive processes by manual labour in a modern, comfortable way. Thus we create quality foods in a qualitative setting. As a co-operative, we resource our capital with concerned citizens, thus offering an alternative investment opportunity for savings otherwise sitting in banks and not being linked to real, new, green economy and local economical resilience...

A bright, colourful, green mobile with lovely, tasty, organic, veggie food stuffs…
The co-operative has over 30 members and owns this lovely van. But because we want to create jobs for the otherwise unemployable, we need to set up more units. We want one in every major city in Flanders.
In each city, ambassadors will be promoting membership, so the citizens themselves will own their own organic and veggie foody place. We’re starting in Brussels, where it will not be a mobile unit, but a fixed place that will be open five days a week. Do you want to eat Belgian organic fries and vegetarian snacks in Brussels? Join us!
