Linda Mallers of FarmLogix, LLC speaks about working with local farmers to relieve growers of logistical concerns, and help the Chicago market to support local businesses and put dollars back into the Midwest economy.
FarmLogix, LLC is a farm-to-plate online aggregation platform connecting local farmers with commercial kitchens, cafeterias and schools. Growers each get a free webpage listing their products, and smaller farms can aggregate their availability to meet institutional needs. The network includes 300 growers within a 250-mile radius of Chicago.
A separate division offers home-delivered boxes of local farm products for non-profit and school fundraisers, as well as for corporate wellness programs,
