The Korean Hansalim Federation means in English “protecting all living beings” and is a movement of farmers and consumers. The principles of the Hansalim federation are based on mutual trust
: farmers shoulder the responsibility for the health
of the consumers while consumers shoulder the responsibility for the livelihoods of the farmers
Hansalim is the largest community supported agriculture initiative in the world. Instead of supporting only one farm, Hansalim cooperates with more than 2,000 individual farmers
. The farms produce health food products for 440,000 households with more than 1.6 million people. The food distribution is managed with 21 food distributing cooperatives, 180 natural health food stores and a very advanced home delivery system. The grassroots movement
is governed by a Board of Directors that is chaired by the President Mr. Lee Sang Kook.
