The Ministry of Icelandic Vegetables
The Ministry of Icelandic Vegetables is a collective of designers, intervening the local food industry. Their aim is to map out production chains, propose farmers and producers new pathways for 'lost' harvest. The designers work as a bridge between the different interest parties. The project engaged with B-class Rutabaga. Hundreds of tons go to waste annually, classified as 'underweight'. Joining various specialists from different fields, the group produced syrup for soft drinks and the first 100% locally sourced alcohol from the dismissed root vegetables.
