Study visit to one of Ultimat´s producers, Potato field in Björklinge.
Ultimat is a local food cooperative, open to all, based at SLU in Uppsala. It was founded 8 years ago, and is run in both Swedish & English
The association is run by a board, which is mainly made up of SLU students. Several active members of the cooperative also help as and when needed, on specific projects. Ultimat has over 100 members & social media followers and is currently the only active food cooperative in Uppsala. Most of the produce Ultimat sells is ecological (some Krav), but all is locally produced, using locally-grown ingredients wherever possible.
Next social event and delivery at UltiMat is Monday 28 March between 17-18 inside the main entrance of Ullshus (Ultuna Campus). Ultimat is holding a fun social delivery, where the members and the producers will get to meet each other and talk. Some produce will be for sale and even to taste at the event. Anyone, also non-members, is welcome to attend, and come and meet Ultimat. You are welcome if you are curious to know more!
- Ultimat is considering securing funding to run workshops for other groups interested in setting up food cooperatives, both in Uppsala and beyond.
- Ultimat see themselves very much as part of the solution for local food distribution around Uppsala, and want to engage with others in this important discussion of how to push this forward.More info on:
