Foodshed.io is a mobile marketing app and logistics platform that connects small-scale producers to chefs, supermarkets and institutional buyers within a 250 mile radius. For farmers, it is a simple platform for accessing urban markets, and responding to local demand and opportunities. Under the same platform, Foodshed.io streamlines and aggregates inventory from multiple farms, creating an efficient, reliable and transparent market where buyers can place all of their orders. Foodshed.io uses blockchain, route optimization and real time updates to bridge the seemingly ever increasing gap between city and country life, helping farmers, buyers and consumers benefit from a more localized economy.
Foodshed.io integrates blockchain technology into our platform to provide verified traceability – so that buyers know the date food was harvested, where it came from, who it was handled by and what procedures were followed – all while allowing market participants to protect proprietary pricing information off-chain. Our blockchain will ensure the ability of buyers and public health officials to address food safety issues even for highly elaborated local supply chains. Our system will also make it possible to quantify the environmental and community impacts of your supply chain.
