Based in Portland, Oregon, FoodHub is a website that aims to connect food buyers and sellers, as a way to lubricate business exchanges.

FoodHub was created by the nonprofit organization Ecotrust because of the recurring problem of farmers and sellers who are unable to find a market for their locally-produced food, but also because buyers often have trouble finding the perfect supplier in order to make the perfect meal. FoodHub comes in to connect that gap through an online platform.

Implications - Foodhub was created for those businesses and individuals requiring massive food deliveries in short periods. Whether its a chef, baker or a large institutional food buyer, the benefits of the Foodhub system are powerful and undeniable.
