Bucky Box is a social enterprise with a mission is to build the digital tools behind a better food system. Our present agricultural system accounts for 40% of the Earth’s land, 33% of our energy, and 25% of our carbon emissions. It is the single largest contributor to fresh water use and its pollution. We’re here to support the reinvention of this system.
Our first software product catalyses the emerging decentralised food system, one that’s bringing a return to local and organic farms selling direct to customers via weekly boxed deliveries. It’s been driven by public demand for fresh local food and ideals. With the help of Bucky Box we’re changing this to driven also by economics. Using our web application, weekly administration time can be reduced from 2 days down to 2 hours by automating customer orders, billing, as well as streamlining packing, delivery and support.
Software is generally a high margin business, we use our money to fund non-profits working on other aspects of the new food system, areas including farming research, public awareness, and education.
