SPECIALTY FOOD SPECIALTYFOOD.COM Farm Fare Connects the Dots Sourcing locally can be challenging for high-volume buyers. Enter Farm Fare, an e-commerce platform that connects region-wide food hubs, food producers, and food buyers with an area's local food products via a one-stop shopping experience and delivery service. "By providing access to the region's inventory, food establishments have greater confidence in consistent fulfillment of orders, a hardship food establishments typically note when trying to source locally," notes Cullen Naumoff, co-founder of Ohio-based Farm Fare. "What's more, when regional family farmers work together to support wholesale market channels, they're able to more effectively plan what to plant each year based on regional demand and supply." Farm Fare is currently developing the second version of its platform in hopes of "supporting our partners and core software customers, food hubs, in other regions of the country." She adds, "We know that when regional food assets work together, they achieve competitive efficiencies without having to compromise their ethics and get 'big' to survive."
