Product Description

Company Overview       

Farmers Fresh Zone (“Farmers FZ”) is a Kerala based start-up connecting rural farmers with urban customers through innovative supply chain.  It’s a farm-to-fork brand The company provides the farmers an online platform to reach potential customers who prefer high quality, fresh, toxic free fruits and vegetables (FnV) instead of cheaper, unhealthy, toxic produce available in the market. On the other hand, the Company is also organizing the farmer community to promote traditional healthy and toxic free cultivation process. 


Farmers Fresh Zone is fundamentally an agro-tech startup, as a founder, I would love to call ourselves a start-up who is aiming at creating a movement - A movement to reduce the gap between a consumer & a farmer,  a movement to provide consumers access to safe & non-toxic farmer's produce, a movement to uplift the farmer community. The interesting thing is that all these are interconnected which govern our thought process & build our value proposition.

 

We've built a unique value chain based off technology that enables us to predict demand, which goes in as an input data to our farmers who are guided on 'What to Produce' & 'How much to produce'. We then procure the fresh produce directly from the farmers at above average rates, thus providing financial stability to them & make it available to consumers through offline stores & our online marketplace. Our unit level traceability module help the consumer to track the farmer and there farming practises.
