Flavrbox - Change the world, one bite at a time!

Let's change the world, one bite at a time

You’re probably aware that today, the food industry urgently needs some radical changes to take place in how we produce and shop for our food. We believe that a step in the right direction is to promote independent food and drink producers, to give them a voice, let them share their story and make it easy for people to connect with them. 

Armed with only our goodwill and passion for food and enterprise, we decided to create Flavrbox is a social enterprise; a community that exists to bring the local farmer to your front door and change the world by the way we treat food! At a basic level it works a bit like a farmer’s market, but it’s online, runs all year round and is national! 

Our vision is to draw people away from supermarket shopping habits and big multinational brands and open up a world of culinary delight. We have a plenty of ideas to make that happen and the one we’d like you to help us with is called FlavrFilm. 

Read on!

So what is Flavrfilm?

FlavrFilm is going to be a set of 12 short videos, each one promoting a selected producer. Our belief is that to support independent producers, we need people to develop a far better understanding of the real value of the food on their plate, where it comes from, how it is produced and by whom. 

Each video will last an average of 3 to 4 minutes. Filming will take place at the producer’s premises and will show what a typical day in their life looks like, how they create their products, how long it takes them and the struggles and pressures they face. 

Videos will be released on the Flavrbox website on a fortnightly basis and promoted via our various social media channels to gain maximum exposure. 

The material created for this first series will also be used as a basis to create a full-length documentary in the near future. 

Where does the money go?

We’ve budgeted for a cost of approximately of £650 per video, which will allow us to cover all our costs for travel, equipment, insurance and final editing. This also includes the 4% commission taken by SponsuMe. 

What do you get out of it?
