Farm to Foodservice Resource

Posted by on Jun 2, 2010 in Food | 0 comments

I just wanted to touch base with cyberspace and the blogging world.  I am comtemplating a new venture and would like input from the world.

The question I have is going out to foodservice professionals in all segments. Is there a need for an internet based locally sourced ingredient search engine? For example a portal for foodservices organizations who are in need of local ingredients as well as the grower/producer information.  The source would allow you to look for speciality ingredients and then you put you directly in contact with a approved vendor or farmer/producer. It would be filtered by distance to source, seasonality, sustainabilty, and direct delivery. This is for foodservice operators who are not in a position to troll the farmers markets or have the time and resources to do the research.

If you have any comments, feel free post them.

Have a peaceful and natural week.
