Distributors

In our food system, ‘Distributors’ are those who help move food from where it is grown or packaged to the end-user – the person eating the food. Distributers include wholesalers, such as markets, and also those who transport food.

Below you’ll find every local resource we currently know about that will help you as an Distributor – or as someone seeking to grow your own knowledge around our local distributor system.
