A new online marketplace, Foodens has launched in the UK – connecting shops and food suppliers with their local communities. Businesses can list food boxes for sale (for both collection and delivery), helping to distribute food across the UK in a safe zero-contact manner, Farmers Guide reports.
The Non-Profit is run by Somerset based couple, Rob and Anna Kerry, who said, “We started Foodens as a way for people to receive a reliable source of food, without queueing at supermarkets and whilst also supporting independent local businesses. We want to keep local food suppliers afloat through COVID-19, whilst also stopping the panic buying and mass gatherings at supermarkets.”
The online marketplace will offer services for suppliers such as, farm shops, butchers, patisseries, fruit and veg wholesalers, ready meal companies, restaurants and anything in between. The company welcomes anyone that can provide local people with food, in accordance with Food Standards regulation.
Having always wanted to create a marketplace for food and being lucky to be surrounded by fantastic local food producers, Rob and Anna decided that now was the right time to put their plans into real action, helping local communities across the UK.
Foodens.com is run by the Foodens Foundation, a non-profit organisation. Retailers are not charged for joining or listing their products, however there is a 10% transaction fee on any orders taken.
