Connecting small farmers to new markets is a universal goal. In Fiji and Australia that is being accomplished due to the efforts of twin sisters, Lisa and Zoe Paisley who have co-founded Aggie Global. They moved to Fiji to start a business and address poverty in rural communities. Farmers struggled with selling their produce while the tourism sector imported 70% of their food so Aggie Global was built to connect either end of the food supply chain in a more transparent and equitable way. Zoe and Lisa came back to Sydney when the pandemic hit and launched an Australian arm to support indigenous farmers by focusing on 'Bushfoods'. It's another great journey of connecting farms and consumers that can be translated to local and global regeneration. Aggie Global's crowdfunding and subscription program will help make positive social change every month. Their campaign helps support Fijian farmers and build healthy communities by providing boxes of locally grown, fruit and vegetables to families in need every month.
