There is direct value for retailers when it comes to local, sustainable, vertical farming.
We understand the pressures today’s food industries face. Whether you’re a grocery store chain, neighbourhood market, or hospitality, food services or catering business, we recognize that saving money while zeroing in on eco-friendly practices is an important part of your organization’s future. When you purchase from Local Leaf Farms, you’ll enjoy benefits and efficiencies arising from:
- Direct to Store Delivery: We deliver our local, freshly picked produce directly to you when it’s needed, saving on inventory, warehouse and distribution centre expenses.
- Reliable Uninterrupted Supply: Costs and inventory can stay consistent year-round because our vertical farms are unaffected by external conditions (such as food safety recalls, extreme weather or geo-political issues).
- Grow to Demand: We work with you to regularly assess how much product you need and to grow exactly what sells at your store. Our model allows us to efficiently adjust what we grow, resulting in better inventory management and rotation, so you can have fewer gaps on the shelf and higher turns. Unlike traditional farms and suppliers, we can customize your product mix on shorter timelines and provide support for seasonal programs, short term promotions and ensure availability.
- Fresher, More Nutrient Rich Food: Quality and nutrient values start to decrease at harvest. Because we grow locally and ship direct to store, our supply chain time is drastically less than imported products. Simply put, we’re giving you and your customers better quality, healthier food.
