Fresh Harvest Crate
We Are Building An Open Ecosystem To Connect Farmers With Restaurants And Everyday People.
“Take the supply chain of a single apple. It might seem trivial and simple but did you know on average that apple was picked almost a year ago. It was stored in a warehouse for almost 11 months before it made its way to the grocery store and then to your house. All of the nutrition that you believe the apple has is gone.”
What is Fresh Harvest Crate?
Fresh Harvest Crate aims to be an open ecosystem founded on open source software and values. The system has been built to facilitate procurement of produce from local harvesters and food cooperatives.
Who Is It For?
Fresh Harvest Crate is aimed at consumer groups, like buying groups, food Coops, and similar enterprises, all around the United States. Our platform provides a unified management platform for all of your orders.
The idea for Fresh Harvest Crate started in the summer of 2016 and had been built upon the Open Food Network Platform. We want to make it easier for everyone to source healthy locally produce.
Fresh Harvest Crate is a brand of Stoic Edge a marketplace company that is focused providing a platform that connects producers, buying groups, restaurant, food Hubs/ coops, and residential homes in a cost-effective way. The food system that we currently have we feel is broken. It gives the supermarkets and large corporations all of the control of the food that we consume. It is frustrating to realize that most of the food that we buy from the supermarket is sourced from all around the world. While at the same time local farmers are typically harvesting the same food that you just bought from the supermarket. When they do sell their harvest to supermarkets they only receive on average one third of the profit. We aim to change that and be disruptive to the supermarket monopoly on the foods we consume and allow for the farmers to have larger margin and provide us all with fresher produce for nearly the same price.
