New Distribution Models

  • July 17, 2012 · 7:00 PM

This month's Five on Food will focus on new distribution models. Meet, mingle, and hear from five group members about how how their companies are revolutionizing the way food moves from farm to fork.

We have 2 spots left for innovative projects that you would like to demo. If you are interested, please email your elevator pitch to [masked].

FarmersWeb is an online marketplace where wholesale buyers can connect and transact with local farms. @farmersweb, [masked]
