On the 29th of January, the outputs of this challenges were presented on stage at the DanTrade Event in Amsterdam.

The Sustainable Sourcing Community was launched in March 2014 and is now gathering more than 110 Danoners and members of partner NGOs.

The community aims at solving common challenges related to sustainable farming and sourcing. 10 challenges were identified and 5 teams were set up to answer to 5 challenges. Only the 3 following challenges were solve after 9 month of work:
