Food distribution – sometimes the best way to fix something is to build a new one

Openfoodnetwork aims to change the way in which food is currently distributed.

Openfoodnetwork is good for customers

Fair prices
There is no wholesaler or retailer adding their markup.
Fresher food keeps longer
If you have purchased fresh produce it has probably just been harvested. It is therefore as nutritious as possible and will last longer.
Better for you
Fresh food has maximum nutrition and tastes as it should.
Supports local economy
When you purchase directly from the producer the money you pay is going to someone local.
Face your farmer
No more anonymous purchases. You have the chance to meet the person that’s producing your food. Give them feedback (and a cuddle, if you like).

Less to no wastage
You only harvest what your customers have bought.
Less risk
Customers pay at the time of purchase – they have a good incentive then to turn up to collect their purchase.
Know your customer
You get to meet each of your customers and can build a relationship from the beginning. No more guessing what the customer wants, you can ask them!
