About us

Since 2011 Agri Kulti has been developing and implementing R&D projects and business-based models in the sustainable agro-food domain. Our overall goal is to reconnect cities and rural areas by establishing a fully transparent link between the best small-scale Hungarian food producers and premium urban gastronomy.

We believe in original tastes and flavours, seasonality and high quality, healthy foods. We believe that total security and traceability are achievable in the food supply chain. Above all, we believe in the farmers: the countryside is capable of providing for itself and cities in a sustainable way, with high standards.
