Summary Problem Solution Industry Landscape
A marketplace (software) for chefs and local farmers, and a GIG farm to table supply chain.
Incumbent distributors must travel long distances to source high volumes, of low-quality, cheap products to fill their costly trucks. Resulting in: chefs not being able to easily order high quality, local, and fresh ingredients, and small-scale local farmers being squeezed out of consistent distribution networks.
A web marketplace for chefs and local farmers, and a CropShop Hub to; easily access customers for local farmers, easily access the best local products for chefs, and to enable GIG farm to table supply chain.
The $260B restaurant food supply market is dominated by incumbents such as SYSCO and U.S. Foods. Incumbents do not focus on offering high quality, fresh, and local ingredients to restaurants due to their costly logistical systems.
