Independent Food Makers Unite

Denver - Submitted by Maurag on Jan 31 2014

In this scenario independent food makers would be able to work together to achieve a unified level of success. This picture would include helping one another with deliveries to retailers, exchanging excess ingredients that are subject to spoilage, sharing information that determines pricing, suppliers, success or non success of markets, sharing co-located space in commercial kitchens and general moral support.

Maybe this would run more efficiently if there was a common warehouse location independent food suppliers could share, without only meeting once a week on farmer's markets. It would make sharing easier between growers and more ready access to consumers, since they could buy local products every day of the week.

2175 LB of food is consumed by average american per year. High Yeild of Maiz/Corn is 11tonns or 22000 LB per hectare per year therefor you only require about 10% of a hectare assuming you have yield as high as Corn (Which is unlikely) with all food required for survival. But almost half of the countries of the world have less than 0.1 hectares per person and Bahrain, Djibouti, Kuwait, Singapore have literally Less than 0.01 hectares per person.
