Webinar: Value Chain Coordination - Creating Partnership through Policy

The Greenbelt Fund has partnered with the U.S. National Good Food Network on a series of value chain coordination webinars.

The second in the series explores how value chains, like all entities, are not isolated, but are rooted in context. One role of value chain coordination is to improve the conditions in which the local value chains exist.

Time: 3:30 pm – 4:45 pm EST

In this webinar we will look at one key piece of context: the rules and laws that value chains must follow. We call this role of value chain coordination "policy thought leadership."

This webinar will look more at little-p policy (inter-business operating principles). Value chains can receive crucial support from intelligent and strategic policies that push participants toward transparency and effective purchasing, and we will see how external value chain coordination can help move all parties to enacting these beneficial rules.


Vanessa Zajfen, Center for Good Food Purchasing

Vanessa has a long history of working with institutions of various sizes on increasing their serving of local, sustainable food. She will share her wisdom on the tactical and strategic levels when working with institutions, such as what policies are effective for creating real impact on the food and the communities they serve.

Dan Hobbs, Rocky Mountain Farmers Union

Dan has been at the forefront of creating a food hub trading network that is beneficial to all parties. He will share how he was able to create policies that respected the needs of all parties, and bring them success - collectively and individually.
