Why we need Mindful Markets ?


“Food” and “Farming” are the most essential elements of our lives. We all need food, no-one excluded and we derive our food from farming. In the old paradigm of GDP-driven economics, the major aim of “agribusiness” is to extract resources from nature and deliver food to anonymous consumers. Those who can pay much can afford high quality food. People without or little purchasing power cannot afford more than low quality food – or no proper food at all. In this framework farmers are a “cost factor” and the goal of mainstream economics is to minimize costs. Markets are battlefields where consumers try to maximize satisfaction while paying the lowest price possible to the producers. We even don’t identify producers as “farmers” or “farmers’ families”.

Fortunately there are alternatives to this approach. Alternatives are growing and strengthening their position in society. We speak about Mindful Markets: standing for a New Spirit in which we build partnerships between “farmers” and “eaters”. We want to focus our lives on Happiness . We don’t want to see our organic “quality” food exclusively go to the well-off only,  rather we want “Organic Food for All”.


Our Objectives

To brings together: pioneers who are forerunners in the Mindful Markets movement, with people who also want to become pioneers in their own contemporary situation. The aims are to bring the models for changes in order to explore and spread the “New Spirit” of “Mindful Markets”.
