Sustainable farmers sometimes struggle to market their products.
Chefs sometimes struggle to find small producers, rather than using large distributors.
The answer is Southern Wisconsin Buy Fresh Buy Local—also known as REAP Food Group’s match-making service. REAP helps area farmers, chefs, and other food service providers build lasting relationships. When farmers and chefs find one another, the result is $1.7 million in local goods purchased by local restaurants.
In this way REAP creates a long-term network of local producers and buyers that has economic benefits to all parties—including all of us who get to enjoy healthy local food when dining out.
