LOCAL

From the community, for the community

 

To understand the value of local we need to consider the main challenges faced by large farming operations.

 

Vegetables bought from retailers should be labelled as ‘frozen’ and ‘non-frozen’ as the term ‘fresh’ really means the veg is anything from 3-5 days (and often more days) old. As soon as vegetables are harvested the decaying process starts which is why suppliers harvest produce before it is ripe and/or place it in bags filled with gas to suppress the bacteria that causes the decay of greens.

 

These challenges put Nourishing Hub in a unique position to deliver quality greens to our customers in the communities where we operate.

  • Nutrient-dense vegetables - because we deliver shortly after harvest we cut food miles (the time-to-table time) from days/weeks to minutes. This means you get nutrient-dense food that cannot be achieved by large scale farming operations.

  • Quality and plastic-free packaging – due to the close proximity to customers in our community we are able to deliver our greens in 100% compostable packaging, we do not have to pack our goods in plastic bags filled with gas to try and extend the shelf life or the product.

  • Re-use local space – because we do not need any farmland we are able to set up shop and re-use/re-invest in current infrastructures like office blocks, warehouses and even car parks to deliver all the goodness associated with Nourishing Hub’s greens.
