F&I #86 with Theresa Imre (Co-Founder and Managing Director of markta)

May 31, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm CEST

Free
“Reinventing local food structures – how to break into mainstream”

Under the motto “from farm to fork”, markta enables and empowers farmers to sell their products at fair prices, in a circular-economy-delivery model and last but not least, to connect with the final consumers. In her talk, Theresa will give insights into the development of our industrialized Agro-food system, as well as, her personal experience, founding and growing a holistic socio-ecologic enterprise in our mainstream economic start-up culture.

About the speaker

Theresa Imre grew up in the Austrian countryside, in the province of Styria. Not long after moving to Vienna for her university education, Theresa found and ran an award winning foodblog called “Eingebrockt und Ausgelöffelt,”. Parallel to her master’s studies in Socio-Ecological Economy and Policy at the Vienna University of Economics and Business, she started working on the concept markta. Today markta is a well-established online farmers’ market with over 200 local producers, 20 employees and thousands of customers.
