Unsustainable big food chains cause a third of global greenhouse gas emissions - because of monoculture, use of fertilizers, plastic packaging and long distance transportation.
A shocking 40% of food grown or raised is wasted between the farm and your table.
Mass production has resulted in compromises in nutrition, freshness, safety and taste.
Local food is environmentally sustainable, thanks to polyculture, organic farming methods, limited plastic packaging and shorter distance to market.
It is superior in quality - nutritional value, freshness, taste and even color.
And local food is produced by, well locals - people who live in your community. When you support your loconomy, you are helping your community.
Local is expensive: In perception or reality. And that hurts its competitiveness, making it hard to go mainstream.
Local lacks awareness: Most people don’t know the difference - so they are blind to it.
Local is inconvenient: From discovering products to buying to having it delivered - there’s pain.
Local is inefficient: Compared to big ag, big food and big grocery chains, local food has suffered from lack of technological innovation.
Result: Local food is a small portion of the food market.
Custom built, best in class online marketplace and technology platform, in service of local economies everywhere.
