World Food Trading
Across the globe while food is rotting, people are going hungry. Food waste consumes 21% of freshwater, 19% of all fertilizer, 18% of cropland, and 21% of landfill volume. Retailers throw away 40+ billion pounds of food annually.
GRO-CONNECT.COM is devoted to solving this problem by connecting farmers around the world to wholesale buyers like grocers and restaurant supply companies in need of product on a timely, cost-efficient basis. Today and in the past, the process has been slow and costly. GRO-CONNECT introduces our proprietary Advanced Procurement Technology (APT) to quickly link growers with buyers in order to move product efficiently.
