We're creating a better, more efficient way for consumers to discover and buy food from artisan producers. Attitudes are shifting when it comes to food, and people want to know more about the food theyʼre eating, particularly who's making it, what it's made of, and where it comes from. We are creating an online community that will make it easy for high-quality artisan producers to sell their products direct to consumers and for foodies not only to buy food, but to learn about and share the products they love.
