Forager Founder David Stone on why it’s is critical to expand wholesale channels for local food.
Recently I had the chance to have an interesting discussion with David D. Stone, the Founder of Forager. Consumers are increasingly demanding fresh, local food. Yet grocers, distributors, and institutions find it challenging to source locally. Forager is seeking to change all of this to make local food more widely available for everyone.
CEO and founder, David Stone, returns to the NECN studios to follow up on a previous conversation and to discuss Forager's recent success in growing the local food economy. He is also joined by Forager Summer Intern and Colby College student Sam Pratico, who shares his experiences at Forager and the reasons he was drawn to Food Tech.
A Maine startup has been changing the way we source our food. 'Forager' has an app that connects farmers with markets, grocery stores and other buyers to streamline the farm-to-table process. The platform launched just over a year ago and is growing fast. CEO and founder David Stone joins necn to discuss.
