Fresh Fork Market is an IT supply chain solution connecting local/regional farmers with local customers. This Software-as-a-Service business helps create a virtual marketplace for efficiently buying and selling perishable foods by allowing users to create and set rules for sales and logistics networks involving one or more producers.
Fresh Fork Market helps smaller producers provide the consistency, availability, and selection that the wholesale food market expects; at the same time, it eliminates inefficiencies in transportation, spoilage, and procurement to allow producers to make more money and customers to buy at better prices. The internet provides a level of convenience not previously available to these parties.
Today, Fresh Fork operates a proof of concept of this model in Cleveland, OH, connecting local farmers with restaurants and families (this is what my website talks about because it is what is pertinent to the current customers).
