Produce

Revolution

Farmer Meets Foodie is about bridging the gap between the farm gate and the commercial kitchen, connecting commercial foodies to the grower. We have developed an easy and interactive way to find out who has what growing and who is looking to buy in your local area.  Farmers, Harvesters and Producers will be able to update what produce they have available when.  Chefs, Restaurants, Cafes, Caterers, Green Grocers and Butchers will be able to register what they are looking to source, send call outs when they need something urgently and see what’s available in their area.  Our FMF platform is live and available for 28 days free trial.  Be one of the first to join the Local Produce Revolution!

Sounds great? Let’s get started!

Pricing

FMF puts pricing in your hands.  Producers set their own price and commercial foodies make their decision on what’s available for a price they are happy with.  All transactions are direct between the producers and commercial foodie.  We will soon have pricing shown for each product listed, in the meantime contact producers direct to see what great deals are available.

 

Quantities

All members on Farmer Meets Foodie are operating in commercial quantities.  Producers will make it clear if they have minimum or maximum order quantities.

 

 

 

Types of Produce

Farmer Meets Foodie is for any produce that is grown or harvested in Australia, produce is listed under categories – meat, fruit, vegetables, seafood and miscellaneous (which includes everything else – coffee, honey, sugar, spices, edible flowers)

 

 

For Producers:

Farmers, harvesters, producers, growers, bee-keepers, fishers- anyone who grows or harvests food in Australia. Just follow our step-by-step guide to help set up your account:

1) Set Up a Business Profile

This takes about 3 minutes, you’ll need a profile pic (company logo or photo of yourself or produce), a cover photo (shot or  scene on farm or location where your produce is harvested), and some info about your business – how you farm or harvest, what is unique about your products and finally, your contact details.

2) Upload Produce to Sell

In “create” a product you will upload a photo, type of product, quantity, the number available and description. Make it clear what is unique about your product, is it grass fed, pesticide-free, Organic?

3) Buyers Will Contact You Directly

You will receive an email notification from commercial foodies who are interested in your product, form there you will set price, arrange payment and delivery. We will soon have transport companies listed on the App who may be able to assist with local transport of your produce.

4) Search of Commercial Foodies

Ever thought your produce would be fantastic on the menu in restaurants, cafes and food trucks in your region? Scroll through the commercial Foodies page to find out who in your area is looking to source local produce for their menus.

5) Pay as You Go

Farmer Meets Foodie is $25/ month or $275/ annum. Only have produce to sell for a few months of the year? Join up for those months and opt out until next season, you will be able to log back into your profile and reboot it once you’ve renewed your membership or stay on year-round to have your business profile always visible to those looking to source fresh local produce.   SIGN UP NOW!

Sounds great? Let’s get started!

Transport

Getting produce direct from paddock or ocean to the commercial kitchen can be a challenge.  We have incorporated transporters onto the site who are willing to deliver produce locally.

 

 

 

 

Timing

The beauty of Farmer Meets Foodie is that producers will upload produce when it is available.  Allowing commercial foodies to search for what is in season right now.  If you are a producer who only has produce available for a couple of months a year you have the option to opt in and out when your product is in season.

Likewise for commercial foodies, only looking to update your menu and look for new supplies annually? Then come and go each year. We’re guessing though that you’ll be wanting your business profile available for all to see year-round as the audience on Farmer Meets Foodie will be very targeted and consist only of those who are passionate about buying and selling local produce.

Certifications

At the moment producers are encouraged to enter details of any certification in the product description when uploading produce.  Soon producers will have a specific box to enter details of any certification that comes with their produce.  In the meantime if you are a commercial foodie requiring specific certification request this from the producer before finalising a purchase.

Advertising

FMF is going to be a great place for you to advertise your business directly to your customers, local community and interstate.  Your audience will be very targeted and consist only of those who are passionate about buying and selling local produce.
