What it does:

It calculates a summarised figure that represents the overall estimated economic impact of a local food production initiative on the local commercial ecosystem.

(In other words, the amount of money the local food value chain could benefit from – per year – if a particular planned local food project were to launch successfully.)

The calculation is supported by data obtained from economists, supported by USDA.

Main features:

  • Multi-step form
  • Conditional logic
  • Calculation


I’ve used the form and it works well, is simple and delivers value effortlessly.

Its brevity makes it painless to finish.

And it delivers a tidy figure at the end, offering to email you the results. Job well done.
