The end of 2014 is officially here - whether we’re ready or not! It has been an eventful year here at Freight Farms, to say the least. We are so fortunate for the support of our community, and are looking forward to a bright 2015 together! What's on our radar this week? Keep reading to find out.
If you haven’t heard by now, we are the newest members of Spark Capital’s portfolio and we couldn’t be more thrilled - this partnership just makes sense. Spark truly believes in our mission to change the food system and we are looking forward to working together to do just this. Look out for some big things in 2015 that will be made possible by the funding - team expansion, product development, and research & development. Together with Spark we hope to help more businesses, communities, and schools grow a diverse variety of crops in tight spaces, extreme climates - places they're needed most.
This week, we’re looking back on a third major highlight of the year - Freight Farms going international! Going international knocked out two “firsts” for us - our first farm abroad as well as our first distributor partnership. Smart Greens, our Canadian farmers, are our “eyes and ears” in Canada, working to build our network abroad and grow our family of Freight Farmers.
2014 is coming to a close but with that comes a fresh start, which means new trends! What do we have to look forward to in 2015? Check out this list from Food + Tech Connect. We can expect to see an explosion of online grocery options, expanded grocery delivery services, and new technologies enabling more food transparency, among others.
Thanks again to our phenomenal community for your continued support and passion for good food. We look forward to what 2015 will bring!
