The Open Food Network is the flagship enterprise of the Open Food Foundation. The Foundation is a non-profit, registered tax concession charity established in October 2012, to develop, accumulate and protect open-source knowledge, code, applications, and platforms for fair and sustainable food systems. We are a software foundation committed to food system transformation. While established in Australia, we support global collaboration on open source projects. The development of the Open Food Network has been largely funded through philanthropy and government grants and a huge volunteer contribution. An OFN service was launched in Australia in June 2015. We are currently piloting in Canada, South Africa, UK and Scandinavia and we have partners developing projects in France and USA.
