How Farm2Fridge is supporting local food suppliers during Covid-19

With online grocery shopping set to soar by 33% this year, we’re excited to launch Farm2Fridge – a new shopping platform designed to give local food retailers a helping hand with their online sales.

The coronavirus pandemic has unexpectedly cast many local businesses into unchartered territory, leaving them navigating the ups and downs of online sales, as lockdown brought shop shutters tumbling everywhere.

But as supermarket customers battle for home delivery slots, and shoppers struggle to stay safe by social-distancing on busy grocery aisles, the demand for convenient online ordering of fresh local produce has never been higher.

What we offer

The Farm2Fridge platform signposts shoppers to local food suppliers by postcode to find fresh, locally-sourced produce for collection or delivery in their local area.

Our unique platform – which offers free sign-up – saves suppliers the time, hassle and cost of managing their own online shop.

We handle all the technical know-how to help promote businesses to the online community, freeing up suppliers to focus on what they do best – supplying fresh, local produce with first class customer service in their local areas..

How does it work?

We’ve teamed-up with local farm shops, butchers, bakers, fishmongers, delis and greengrocers to launch a fast, free and easy online ordering platform for customers , where they can do their shopping from home and pay safely online.

It’s free to sign up and there’s just a small commission fee for every order placed to cover our technical costs. It’s so easy, you could be selling to online customers in days!

According to the latest research from Mintel, the online grocery market is set to grow by 33% in 2020 to reach an estimated value of £16.8 billion– that’s up from £12.7 billion from 2019.

There really has never been a better time for local food suppliers to get online – so what are you waiting for?
