Fresh.Land is an online platform helping farmers to sell to retailers just-in-time with adequate scale and digital infrastructure, bypassing middlemen to provide fresher food. To reach the table the conventional way, fruits and vegetables are filled with chemicals, often spending months in storage before reaching stores. The long supply chain is the key source of greenhouse gases and enormous waste – up to 40% of all food produced. Using Fresh.Land, farmers upload their availability, retailers order with one click and Fresh.Land ensures delivery through external partners. Finally, everyone rates each other in a user review and feedback system to guarantee quality. Farmers deliver from tree to store in days, instead of months — with 60% less chemicals, 88% less CO² emissions, and 10% less food waste. In addition to quick market access, Fresh.Land provides a wiki disseminating best practices, to make farmers’ work more sustainable. Fresh.Land is a win-win for all. Farmers receive a greater share of the profits. Retailers source better products at lower costs. Consumers benefit from fresher produce.
