Every company has a story — and at SmartSolutions, we’re passionate about helping them tell that story. Our first client spotlight feature is Food MarketMaker, a national network that connects farmers and fishermen with food retailers, processors, caterers, chefs, consumers and more.
“Whether you are a producer looking to reach new markets; a buyer wanting to connect with local or specialty suppliers; or a consumer looking for goods and services in your area MarketMaker is a must-have resource.
MarketMaker is the largest and most in-depth database of its kind featuring a diverse community of food-related businesses: buyers, farmers/ranchers, fisheries, farmers markets, processors/packers, wineries, restaurants and more. MarketMaker provides simple yet powerful search tools to connect with others across the production and distribution chain.”
At Food MarketMaker, there are ways to benefit everyone — from producers and buyers down to consumers.
For producers — Register your business in MarketMaker, creating your entry in the database where consumers and buyers can find your products. Through MarketMaker, producers are able to reach and form alliances with buyers more efficiently.
For buyers — Registering yourself as a buyer makes your business discoverable to producers who are looking to grow, source or sell more of whatever you might be looking for. Using MarketMaker helps buyers find more suppliers of differentiated, high-quality products, leading to more efficient sourcing and, in-turn, higher margins.
For consumers — Looking to find fresh strawberries, organic apples or mirlitons? Consumers are able to use MarketMaker to locate suppliers selling exactly what they’re looking for. Use MarketMaker to search for literally any product, such as chick peas, specialty mushrooms or seasonal fish, from anywhere in the United States.
Looking to find fresh produce, but not sure what might be in season in your neck of the woods? MarketMaker’s “What’s in Season” app provides consumers and buyers a place to search for just that — produce in season in your geographical region.
Every company has a story — and at SmartSolutions, we’re passionate about helping you tell that story.
