"FOODLOGICA is startup operating in Amsterdam, their fleet of e-trikes links local and consciously minded food producers, consumers, and businesses to one another.
FOODLOGICA seeks to develop new standards of urban consumption through the creation of a strong network of partnerships with like-minded and sustainability conscious businesses. With its deliveries as sustainable brands, the enterprise promotes, empowers, and strengthens relationships between these local ventures throughout the city; from cafes and chefs, to web-shops and restaurants."
