Mayani and Iskaparate: kindred spirits for 1Coop Marketplace
The name Mayani is a fitting tribute to the farmers and fisherfolk who work hard to provide us with food. It is also a reminder of the importance of agriculture and the need to support sustainable farming practices, while the founders of Iskaparate wanted to create a digital version of the tiangge.

Dear Arla and AI
Arla is a cooperative, which means that it is owned by the farmers who supply the milk. This means that they have a direct say in how the company is run and how the profits are shared. They also have a strong commitment to animal welfare, environmental sustainability and quality standards.
Finally! Empowering co-op farmers
The advent of an online marketplace tailored for farmers who are members of cooperatives has far-reaching implications. It's not merely a platform for buying and selling; it's a mechanism for community-building, sustainability, empowerment, and innovation.
