GetSwift, a leading provider of SaaS logistics technology, announced Wednesday it was adding three local dairy and meal kit providers on the east coast to its powerful farm-to-table delivery management platform.
The new partnerships with Homestead Creamery, Nounos Creamery, and Fresh List come as American farmers have been forced to dump millions of gallons of fresh milk amid a steep decline in demand from schools, restaurants, and food service providers.
Because dairy is a daily crop, farmers are dumping as much as eight percent of their milk—as much as 3.7 million gallons of milk wasted each day—according to the national milk cooperative Dairy Farmers of America.
“This pandemic has upended the whole global food supply chain, but the dairy market was hit more violently than other commodities because its product is so perishable,” GetSwift CEO Bane Hunter said. “That’s why GetSwift’s platform, which brings farm-to-table through the last-mile, is such a no-brainer for dairy farmers, or any agricultural products, and their customers. Watching a farm’s nutritious product go down the drain when so many out-of-work Americans are struggling to feed their families is heart-breaking, and we’re proud we can leverage our platform to help out.”
GetSwift, which acquired the global farm-to-table logistics platform Delivery BIZ Pro last year, will help facilitate relationships, transactions, and deliveries between these clients and new customers by optimizing front-end ordering, route mapping, and business intelligence.
Homestead Creamery provides fresh milk, butter, ice cream and homemade lemonade to southwest Virginia. Nounos Creamery makes authentic bag-strained Greek yoghurt in Babylon, NY. Fresh List sells local Charlotte, North Carolina produce, dairy, meats and meal kits with recipes from an executive chef direct to consumers.
These are but a few of the many farms, dairies, creameries and local food businesses across 26 states today that trust GetSwift to help them manage from order to delivery during this pandemic.
