How can supply chain innovation help local farmers? with Patrick Mateer of Seal the Seasons
Throughout the past several years, many consumers have been increasingly focused on shopping more locally, especially with their produce. However, local farmers oftentimes do not have the resources to be able to supply their products to a larger scale on their own. They are also at the mercy of environmental influences that may affect their harvest. This week on Beyond the Shelf, we spoke to Patrick Mateer, Co-Founder and CEO of Seal the Seasons, who have created a network of local farmers which allows growers to produce, freeze, and sell their produce in regional grocery stores. We spoke to them about how their business has created an innovative new supply chain for local farmers, as well as the importance of keeping jobs/money within local businesses.
