Sole trader Kate Rich has operated Feral Trade since 2003, extracting the surplus freight potential of the art world and other moving systems to run international grocery supply lines across otherwise unsustainable territory. Feral Trade forges new 'wild' trade routes across hybrid territories of business, art and social interaction. In this talk she discusses Feral Trade in conversation with Simon Preston from EAT! Festival.
