Back in June, CLF members Veggie Galaxy, Cambridge Naturals, and Pemberton Farms hosted a Japanese food nonprofit that visited Cambridge to learn about building a thriving community of local businesses.
Cambridge Local First was proud to help organize a group of 16 professionals from Japan who visited Cambridge to learn from food-related businesses and local retailers. The Japanese nonprofit group consisted of professors, farmers, and individuals representing a farmer's association, a food distributor, and food manufacturers. They had lunch at Veggie Galaxy, and met with the owners of Cambridge Naturals and Pemberton Farms Marketplace. It was a great reminder that our mission for supporting our local economy is shared across the globe!
