Do you know where the seed in your food comes from?
Most seed comes from only a few multinationals. There are very few alternatives, even in the organic sector. What if you could protest against seed monopolies simply by baking or buying a loaf of bread?
This is our aim in promoting open-source bread. We want to create awareness and links between plant breeders and consumers. That’s why people along the entire value chain are teaming up: farmers, a mill and various Berlin bakeries. Starting in autumn 2019, you can buy a loaf of bread to boost a new agrarian revolution!
Why only in Berlin?
Yes, we would love to offer open-source bread throughout Germany – indeed all over the world! But we have to start somewhere. Berlin has a vibrant scene of bakeries committed to offering high-quality products: organic and hand-crafted. Starting in autumn 2019 various bakeries will offer open-source bread, each according to its own original recipe.
Here is how you can get involved!
- You are a baker in Berlin and interested in the project? Contact us!
- You are breeding rye or spelt? Many bakeries are very interested in open-source cereals. We are happy to advise you on the licencing of open-source varieties and its benefits!
- Farmers, millers, bakeries outside of Berlin: We’re hoping to expand next year. If you’re interested, get in touch with us now.
- You like eating bread? Tell your friends about open-source bread – especially in and around Berlin. Also if you like on social media at #OpenSourceBread and #FreeTheSeed.
