Llano Velasquez Manuel, Hub Rural Platform

Fresh produce is photographed.

For entrepreneurs focused on small-scale agricultural business in Bogota, Colombia, transport seems to be the barrier in product promotion and thus sales. Llano Velasquez Manuel has thus created the Hub Rural Platform project as a way to bridge the gap between farmers and conscious consumers by distributing organic, vegan and locally produced crops to verified organic markets. Piloted earlier this year, Llano has a wide network of producers along with an efficient communication strategy leading the project to great success.
