With organic, all natural and locally grown foods gain in popularity, the need for an enterprise level online distribution system is overwhelming. Veralta Group is uniquely qualified to build, configure and launch the system into multiple markets using a regional approach. The system will allow the consumer to find local producers, see how their food was grown, source current availability and purchase healthy locally grown food online. For the producer, the application gives them inventory control, bar coding, shipping and a retail outlet that is much less costly and time consuming that direct marketing or the typical farmer's market.
The system not only enables the producer to do what they love, grow healthy food, it also empowers and enables the local community to get involved in their local food movement with the ease of point and click ordering.
Simply put, we need your help to make this system a reality! Although grants are available on a competitive basis they require matching funds. We want to get this tool to market now to enable farmers and communities the ability to interact, engage and distribute healthy locally grown food back into their region and build their local economies.
The Ozarks region is experiencing rapid growth in the local food movement and connecting the end consumer with the producer in an easy to use format is an essential next step to tying the food system together and supporting our local economy at the same time. Finding cost effective solutions for the purchase and sale of local healthy food brings our community together and increases the amount of nutrient dense food available in our local market.
