Blue Ridge Produce
Blue Ridge Produce provides local Virginia farmers a consistent high-volume buyer at fair prices and to supply regional supermarkets, food service companies, and distributors with a consistent and reliable supply of high-quality, healthy locally-grown food at volumes that match their scale. It will seek B-Lab certification and operate under the principles of a Benefit Corporation although not eligible for Benefit Corporation Status as an LLC.
By aggregating local produce in Virginia, the Company offers fair prices and consistent income to farmers, enhances the value of farmland, and offers wholesale buyers the high quality, nutrient-dense local produce that customers demand. Providing produce from the Piedmont region directly to Mid-Atlantic suppliers also reduces the carbon footprint of our food system.
