The Better Food Traders data project is a way for us to gather data from all members in the network, in order to help everyone understand their own enterprise in a wider context. All data is for our use only and if published it is always aggregated/anonymised unless explicitly agreed by the individual members.
The BFT data dashboard can be used as tool for benchmarking, so that you can see whether you’re running your enterprise in the same way as others, and potentially find ways to hone your business.
We also use the data collected to build a case for Better Food, helping us understand the scale and impact of our small but mighty sector.
If you need any stats for your Annual Report/Impact Report, feel free to use data from the Dashboard – it’s your data! You can also email our Data Project Lead, Hattie Hammans, to ask for help with any network-related data questions – firstname.lastname@example.org
